Blushing Magnolia

Monday, March 4, 2013

Magnolia blossoms are soft and dreamy in the pure light of early spring.  They open quickly and I was able to photograph this one in the process of blooming.  Morning sun began the blossom and by day's end this flower was at its best.

According to the language of flowers, the magnolia symbolizes dignity.  In Victorian times floriography was used to communicate meaning through flowers.  The glowing beauty of a magnolia blossom seems to be a perfect reflection of this virtue.  Don't you agree?

Have a wonderful week...
