suddenly, everything is budding, awakening....opening, beguiling, color is coming back into the world.
the spring lion is trying to roar here with threatened snow (pishhhh, not going to happen)...but i know that our spring is right around the corner.
it's early but these japanese magnolias are making me happy today - even through the cloudy weather.
So so pretty...ReplyDelete
Oh wow...this is sublime. Love that everything is blooming again...a nice metaphor for life.ReplyDelete
exactly what i'm talking about! welcome march!!!!ReplyDelete
That color! Gorgeous.ReplyDelete
beautiful! i love magnolias.ReplyDelete
march means autumn for me..I'm ready for it. almost.
Wonderful magnolia...I'm glad march is here.ReplyDelete
that Japanese magnolia makes me happy too. So do the iris that are making their debut out here in the west :)ReplyDelete
oh, so pretty! we have a few magnolia flowers blooming here ... yet we are going into autumn ... strange :-pReplyDelete
there is a glimmer of sunshine this morning that just might make me believe spring will come here too! come on magnolias!ReplyDelete
That photograph is so beautiful! You've inspired me...ReplyDelete
My friend's magnolia tree on her farm is getting fuzzy buds, so I hope the frost won't destroy them before they blossom.
This is such an exciting time of year! :)
I appreciate the notes you leave me...thank you.
xoxo country girl
I would be so excited, seems awfully early, but it is gorgeous here too, although nothing in bloom, not for a while. Take care.ReplyDelete
ooh how wonderful!!!ReplyDelete
Just dreaming of seeing something similar here in the next few weeks...until then, I will live thru your photos!ReplyDelete
Aaahhhaaaaa... so that's what they are. I have been seeing some of those around here.. I am sure I couldn't take such a great picture of it as you did though!!! lovely!!!ReplyDelete
How lucky you are that spring is happening for you,... we'll be along after a few more weeks. What a beautiful bud!ReplyDelete
strong bloom with soft spring calling here!ReplyDelete
Very gentle photograph. Spring ... It won't be long now!ReplyDelete
great photo....but, damn I'm jealous !ReplyDelete
alhtough, I can't complain as we are back into the 40's for the next five days for so....stop laughing, that's HUGE for here :)
it's snowing here, right now in Atlanta, but even so spring is just around the corner - that's a fact. beautiful shot.ReplyDelete
It's gorgeous...I long for color as I look out my window and see countless amounts of snow piled on our front yard!ReplyDelete
Spring can't come soon enough.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to spring, but it will be at least a couple of months before it comes here. For now, I'll just be happy with sunshine days. *sigh*ReplyDelete
i do wish spring would come and stay,
Great shot! And I am sooo looking forward to the spring. The cherry blossoms have bloomed around here; a sure sign that spring is on the way.ReplyDelete
beautiful. just beautiful.ReplyDelete
Yep, Spring is just around the corner...can't wait. Winter is becoming old news.
You are so far ahead of us here in Canada. We just got our first snow last week! I have a magnolia tree on our front lawn and when it blooms - usually the first week of May -- we know that spring is right behind it!ReplyDelete
well, that's good news Char. Spring, like sunshine after the rain, is always welcome.ReplyDelete
Sorry I've been bad and haven't passed by recently...
SUCH a beautful photo.
Oh, oh! Is it really true? How beautiful!ReplyDelete
Is a Japanese magnolia the same thing as a tulip tree? I know the one and not the other. The bud is beautiful...and it screams SPRING!ReplyDelete
you are blessed to have buds...nothing here yet. our March can be fickle...lovely post!ReplyDelete
Let the lion roar!ReplyDelete
we are not quite there. soon, but not yet.ReplyDelete
ooh, my neighbor has some of these lovely flowers in her front yard. gorgeous!ReplyDelete
and spring is a'comin'! whee! :)
If you just took that photo today and you didn't take it in an indoor aboreteum...you must be at least two months ahead of us there!...It has been snowing on and off all day here and I thought of going out to take some pics but it was just too darn cold!ReplyDelete
It's amazing isn't it, how a hit of colour, the hope of what's to come, the promise of spring, even on a dull day can just lift our spirits!ReplyDelete
Oh you are so lucky -- we're probably about a month behind you up here... :)ReplyDelete
So lucky you...ReplyDelete
