    Lovely, soft blossom!

  • Theresa

    I love magnolia, but it seems like just as I realize they are blooming, the petals are already dropping. Falling blossom makes me happy (nature’s confetti) and sad (the flowers are dying). Until next year, absolutely.

    I love the magnolia. That is my Maggie’s name: Magnolia. She is from Kentucky.
    Your answers are good ones. I can really relate to #2, and I had to laugh at #3.
    Have a great weekend!

  • carol

    Wow! What a beautiful image of the magnolia.

  • Debbi Decker

    I love the scent of Magnolias. In the South, we cut them and float them water filled bowls. The scent will fill the room! And I agree with statement #4. Of course for me you have to change the venue from nature to…. well you know! 🙂

  • Judy

    Thanks for sharing your magnolia bloom. I only listen to music when I am in the car.

    • Claudia Willison

      I used to listen to music in the car all the time. Now it is more the exception or when I am driving long distance, but not commuting.

  • Jennifer

    This is my favourite flowering tree!

  • Kathy

    Ahhhh….magnolias! So many think they are just a southern flower.

    • Claudia Willison

      Hahaha – and I didn’t know that it is considered a southern flower. The trees here are sooo big and beautiful, and we are definitely not ‘the south’

    I am blasting music right now — some Maroon 5 – because Adam Levine, of course.
    I take advantage of no one being in the house and let the tunes reign down on me. otherwise it’s Frozen and Disney All The Hours. 🙂

    I’m still a night owl, but I have to get up early to get the kids off to school. but some days (today), I can go back to bed for a little nap. But I try to keep it to an hour or so…. not all day. Too many photographs waiting to be captured. LOVE the magnolias — so wish I could grow them here.

    • Claudia Willison

      Of course, because of him, not at all because you have got the house to yourself 😀
      That is kind of how I think – you miss so much when you spend so much (daylight) time in bed.

  • Ida+P.+Krause

    Gorgeous! So glad you didn’t miss their beauty and you were able to share this lovely photo with us.

  • Yvonne

    I love the picture. I feel the same way about #2. Have a great weekend!

  • Maureen

    Hi Claudia,
    Oh, I miss magnolias, and mimosas, and lilacs. All dear and familiar scents of childhood, and hardly ever seen where I live now. Oh well! At least I can breath in Miss Josephine’s warm, musky little cat scent any time I want!

    • Claudia Willison

      Really, there are none around there? How strange. Then again, I miss lilacs, haven’t seen very many here (in previous years) and I love the scent of those! Of course, it cannot compare to your little one’s scent 😉

  • hilary

    I hear you with #2 but sadly that is my life….

  • Peabea

    What a wonderful macro capture of the bloom. Lovely. 🙂
