March Magnolia


The magnolia is perhaps the most beautiful of flowers to appear
in our garden, with a scent beyond compare, but I I did a double
take last night as I glanced outside to see the silhouette of the
blossoms against the sunset and my heart cried, No!

I felt like these beauties are the princess in a fairy tale
tricked into trusting an evil enchantress disguised  as someone
 trustworthy and kind and that a happy ending isn't in the books.

Only time will tell how this fable will end.

~Be well friends~

Such beautiful images. I loved the post you put on Instagram this morning! :)

It's a bit unnerving to think that we might have all the spring flowers out before April even begins! Fingers crossed that your fairy princess doesn't end up frost nipped.

I'm glad that you were able to get a couple of captures of these beautiful blooms. I've always wanted to try growing a Magnolia. :)

Karen said...

I'm feeling the same way about everything starting to bloom in our gardens... I sure hope they aren't destroyed by some evil frost. :-(

Oh how I miss the magnolia trees from when I lived in Georgia. Thank you for capturing their beautiful buds and sharing!

Beautiful. I love Magnolia bushes/trees. When we moved to our little homestead last year, I found we had one in the yard. What a wonderful surprise. We moved in February and therefore we had no idea of what trees were there etc. So as spring started to arrive...wow what a surprise.

Blessings,
Connie

how beautiful! I've been worried for all the little blooms in my neighborhood, as well.... but in our case, I am sure now that spring is here to stay.

Is this a magnolia bush? Our magnolia trees don't bloom until about June through summer. They love that hot, humid, southern weather!
Hopefully you won't get a freeze. Mother nature needs to take into account what she started and follow through! No surprise winter in May!!!
LYLAS!

Our first home had a 25 year old saucer magnolia and I loved the blooms, although they were short lived.

I really think magnolias are such beautiful flowers. There was a pink saucer magnolia tree not to far from my apartment (when I was still living in Oregon). I took some photos of it, so I can remember how beautiful it is. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
