For those of you not from the South, this might not look familiar. It's a bloom from the Magnolia tree in my side yard.

It's a small tree, maybe 11 or 12 feet high, and it's only been developing a lot of blooms the past few years. The blooms only last a few days but they're very pretty while they last and the scent is wonderful. It looks like there'll be over a hundred blooms this year so I hope to be able to get a picture with dozens of blooms at once in the next few weeks.

THIS is exactly why I always smile when your blog shows as Updated on my blogroll list, Utenzi. That is just gorgeous. Where else would I see photos like that?

This is a beautiful picture! It makes me want to go visit a garden and just wander for hours.

You always manage to capture the loveliest pictures. Then you wrap word-images around them. Such a comforting read...I almost feel as if I'm there.
