Looks like Dogwood on Cypress. Nice combination of delicate and roughness.

I would think that's a combination only found in that belt from southern Georgia across to Louisiana, Steve. And I think you are right. Nice version!

Would have guessed Kudzu had it not been for the blooms. Guess it's not thick enough either.

LOL, Steve. Now you'll have all the yankees wanting to know what kudzu is. Let's see, how do you explain, Kudzu? An obnoxious vine that grows in the south and literally takes over everything in sight. Telephone poles are not exempt. It smothers and kills any vegetation it covers. It can grow at a rate of 1 foot a day. Beware of kudzu! (But it makes great cattle feed).

Alexmeta, great work. I think the flowers would "pop" a little more if you mask out the blue color cast. They would be dynomite against that deep blue background. JMHO

You nailed it! That's Kudzu. I've seen it cover whole barns and abandoned houses too.

I have heard that it was originally brought from Japan to plant on hills etc to prevent erosion.
