Blooming Tuesday - Magnolia

I have the big book going with Magnolia blossoms.  This spread isn't completed yet.  It is just in bud.

Happy blooming Tuesday to everyone. I hope you are able to be out enjoying spring weather now.

A beautiful way to keep the buds forever! I love the way your "big book" is filling in. You are creating a wonderful story of your garden.

Those blossoms were made for the medium of watercolor. The paint adds to their delicate and dainty look.

Hi Lisa....beautiful bud....beautifully captured.

The magonlia trees in our village are just coming into bloom....much later than normal. Hopefully this year the frost won't catch their lovely blooms......

I love magnolias! Are you liking the book better now? I heard the paper is thin. Is that correct?

This piece causes me to wish I had Magnolia tree in my yard! Gorgeous. I wonder what zone you have to be to allow them to survive?

So tender and so delicate!
