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.

These are lovely…
Thank you – good to see you back.
This set is really nice
If you want you can see mine there : http://sophielphotos.wordpress.com/2014/04/14/magnolia-forever/
but by seeing yours I notice that mine is a little bit aggressive because the sweet is really present in yours pictures
Thank you for your kind comments. Yours are very nice too.
Thank you !!!! 😀
Beautiful! Magnolias are one of my favorite flowers. (Is that the right word – “blossoms”? Either way they look and smell wonderful.)
Yes they do unlike the Bradford Pears out front which are kinda stinky.
I can smell them now – we have a Magnolia that is now over 100 feet but it only blooms a few flowers each year.
Ours goes hog wild with flowers.
Oh, I would love to stand down wind – beautiful fragrance!
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. 🙂
Yep! Spring has finally sprung. I’m hobbling along, learning how to move better with the crutches but the pain is getting better. Thanks 🙂
Glad you’re feeling a little better. Beautiful images, as always! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Thank you 🙂
