|this tree looks like dozens of big white birds are in the branches!|
|I spotted this one out on one of the old plantations out in the country|
What is it about the magnolias that I love so much? Is it the shiny glossy leaves? The big creamy blooms? The twisty tree branches all gnarled together?It's all that and something else....a distant memory of a sweltering summer day long ago and far away. My Mommy snuggled up right next to a huge bloom and said "these beautiful blooms are bigger than dinner plates!"---as my Daddy snapped the photograph on the Brownie camera.
Happy Birthday Mommy!
