SOUTHERN MAGNOLIA

Friday, May 20, 2011



Each time I take a stoll in the garden I am amazed.
The Magnolia is a southern favorite.
Such humble beginnings...


 Unfolds into such exquisite beauty and fragrance.






As I enjoy these beautiful blooms, I think on the beauty of God's creation...


and as I am captivated by their magnificent fragrance...





I am speechless; can scarcely take it in.




Enjoying the beauty of the garden is to be aware of the presence and magnificence of the creator.


So mindful and thankful that I am  
"...fearfully and wonderfully made..."
Psalm 139:14

So thrilled that God loves me and knows me so well that
"...the very hairs of your head are all numbered."
Matthew 10:30

Amazing!
So blessed and so thankful!



Love your sweet comments.
Blessings,
Cindy

  13. Amazing indeed, Cindy! That blossom looks perfect. Years ago we had an old Magnolia tree and I miss having one. I'll just enjoy yours! However, I don't know about the tree's beginnings. I'll have to do a search and read about it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful blossoms. I too, marvel that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

    Happy weekend!

  20. Such a beautiful post and the mosaic is lovely. I see so many magnolia trees around here but they seem to be huge and I barely can see the flowers, so this was great! Thanks!

  21. If a tree could be a Queen, then I'm sure that the Magnolia would be it! We have two magnolias up here but they will never reach the size or attain the beauty of a real southern magnolia.

  26. I am a Central Wisconsin girl who lived in the Carolinas for 12 years and there is NOTHING like the southern magnolia! (Unless it's the camilla)

    There are "things" up here with pink blooms that open before the leaves appear in the spring - - -and folks CALL them magnolias, and maybe they are some poor distant cousin - - - but what I think of as a magnolia is what you have shown here.

    They are elegant and beautiful and I thank you for this post!

  27. Stunning photos!! Thank you for sharing them.

  28. Every Spring I wait to see the magnolias bloom. They are usually the pink and purple ones and nowhere near as gorgeous as the white one in your photos. Oh my, oh my. And the photos are amazing and frame-worthy. Thanks for the breath of spring. Jane

  34. A true Southern Belle! There is nothing like a tall beautiful Magnolia Tree covered in her white beauty! And those leaves are so stunning when painted gold & added to Christmas wreaths. This is my first Show Off Your Cottage Monday & I hope to join in again soon!
