Day 101

The gorgeous magnolia tree! It's buds are beautiful. They look like rose buds, and are rising out of their little velvety pods. Yesterday was 85 degrees, and today they decided to grace us with their beauty.

I love magnolia. It's such a blousy tree for so early in the year. It looks wonderful against the blue sky - but then, what doesn't!

Jennifer said...

So many buds! Magnolias are so beautiful.

Chelsea said...

This is a beautiful shot, and I hope you get to take another picture when it's all in bloom. I bet it'll be awesome.

BTW, I make all my collages in Picnik. Even the free version has a few templates to choose from, but for a couple of bucks a month, you can get a whole bunch of options. I'm sure there is a more techy way of doing them, but I like to keep my life simple when I can.

So THAT's what those are called! I've seen a few of those trees around me and thought they were beautiful, but didn't know what they were called!
Beautiful shot! Love the blue sky behind it
