Skywatch Friday ~ May 7, 2010

Delicate magnolia flowers withstand our cool spring. Most of these flowers have now gone.

Magnolias.....I have seen ones like this, but the tree with the large bloom and dark green leaves is my favourite. Always lovely to see your photos, and I like the way you got in among the branches.
Blessings - Jan

Aren't Magnolia's beautiful? Do you have some where you live or have you seen the one you describe in another land? We don't actually have a lot of magnolias here and most of the ones I've seen are still young. Thanks for stopping by Jan. Blessings to you too :-)

Oh..what a shame the flowers are gone! spring is also very weird here...it's cool and windy again..

Your story with the transporter cracked me up..and what a coincidence! :-)
Have a great week end, dear Joyful...

I love Magnolias..beautiful in bloom. We have one variety here (the big blossoms). I assumed the pink tulip type would do as good, so I ordered a few years back. They didn't make it (sniff)..beautiful though!

Magical Mystical Teacher, great poetry :-)

Lala Ema, lovely to see you. You have a great weekend too!

Regina, we share the love of Magnolias. Catch you later, eh? I know you've gone to sleep. Have a wonderful Mother's Day :-)
