Magnolia Macro Monday

We are still gray and brown here, so I had to seek out some flowers and loveliness for this Macro Monday.  I went with a friend to the home and garden show and just seeing all those flowers and bushes made my week.  The low and filtered lighting inside the huge building, however I did not love so much. 


These are straight out of the camera.  The nice lady siting nearby and hand painting flowers on  greeting cards told us it was a form of Magnolia. I liked the delicate flowers on the bush.

I love those flowers - I don't think I've ever noticed them until a few years ago.

I agree with the posts above - they are great blossoms and I always look forward to their bursting forth here in the spring.

Beautiful flower -- and your pictures are great. Garden shows are fun this time of year (or were when we lived in Oregon where we had lots of gray days and looked forward to spring so much).

Nothing wrong with SOOC! These are beautiful shots and capture the essence of the flowers perfectly.
