It's That Time Again

If you have read this blog for a while, or kept tabs on my Flickr photostream, you'll know by now that I essentially take the same photos and write a similar blog entry at roughly this time of year every year. This time of year being Magnolia Time! I can't help it.

Pink Magnolia

There is something about seeing these guys towards the end of Winter each year that gives me a lift, puts a kick in my step. Especially when they are combined with a blue sky day. Spring is just around the corner! Sure, they are a Winter flower but they seem to be heralding Spring in exaggerated fashion.

White Magnolia

Shall we make it a date for next year?!

I heart magnolias. not only are they beautiful, they hold a lot of special feelings and memories.

The magnolia right on our property line is actually putting out some mid-summer blooms at the moment, which I believe it also did last year.

It's a melancholy time for me (annually) when the magnolias bloom there (and the cicadas are singing here). Fall doth approach. Need. More. Summer. I should move South.

The blooms are GAWJUS, though! (See, I'm already affecting my Southern accent.)

I adore magnolias, and these are particularly great shots of them.
