Magnolias!!!!!

Magnolia – 11×14 – pastel on paper

The magnolias are blooming like crazy this year – or more than they have in the past – I tend to exaggerate.  We have two trees in the yard.  One in the front and one in the back.

They are the big trees with the big flowers.  They smell great!  Some magnolia trees in the neighborhood are dwarf trees with the big flower, which is nice because the flowers are lower.  With the big tree it’s hard to even get a good photograph of the blooms because they are so high.  However, once in awhile, if you can catch it at the right moment (the flowers peak on one day and then they’re done!) blooming on a lower branch you’ll be able to at least have a photograph to work from.
