Sweet Magnolias

I never tire of taking pictures of magnolias.  Each and every one is truly a masterpiece ... from the pristine, creamy ivory petals gracefully curling around the seed pod, to the shimmery dark green leaves, with their coppery fuzzy undersides. Magnolias, to me, are the epitome of southern grace and hospitality.  Here are a few of my favorites ...

So nice to see your photos again. Yes, I too love the beautiful "southern" magnolias and you capture them so beautifully.

Your photos are lovely Janie. Magnolias are truly beautiful creations from our beautiful Lord. These would make lovely paintings if I ever start painting again! Right now I've been busy with knitting and crochet. I'll get back to painting again one of these days!

Janie, those are truly breathtaking. You are a marvel with the camera and always have been. You never cease to amaze me with your talent.

I miss you and wanted to drop by and give you a cyber hug. So much to share with you. I haven't been blogging, but I keep planning to return. And I will. Life has just gotten in the way.

Hope you are having a wonderful spring and enjoying your precious grands.

Love you, my friend...

Janie, We were recently in Washington, DC at the Museum of Natural History. They had a photo slide show on exhibit. As I investigated further I see they have an annual Photo Contest for nature photography and any photographer can enter. I immediately thought of you with all your beautiful photos. Below is the link for more information in case you are interested.

Best wishes,
