Revisit Week – Magnolia

As I am on the mend and just beginning to be able to put weight on my foot with the assistance of a crutch (and walls, and door knobs, and counters, etc.), this week will consist of re-posting old posts/photos; ones that may not have been seen in a long time or even brand new to some of you.  These images are from the magnolia tree in our front yard and were taken a couple of years ago when spring decided to come earlier than it did this year – no one had ever heard of a “polar vortex” back then.  Now the tree is just beginning to open but by the end of this week I bet it will look like these images.

I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.  ~Claude Monet

    but by seeing yours I notice that mine is a little bit aggressive because the sweet is really present in yours pictures

  3. Beautiful! Magnolias are one of my favorite flowers. (Is that the right word – “blossoms”? Either way they look and smell wonderful.)

    I can smell them now – we have a Magnolia that is now over 100 feet but it only blooms a few flowers each year.

    Just this past weekend, out in the burbs, I noticed magnolia’s just starting to open. Spring really is here. Glad to hear you’re doing better, Teri. Hang in there. 🙂
