It was a bright, beautiful, and sunny day when I photographed these magnolias, the State Flower of Mississippi and Louisiana. This was my first photograph of magnolias this year.
"The magnolia tree is a fixture in the southern states of the U.S. and when it blooms it is a harbinger that spring has finally arrived. The magnolia flower is beautiful and has been given special meaning over the years. The magnolia flower represents "splendid beauty and dignity" and it is a welcome sight throughout the countryside. The magnolia tree was named after a French botanist from the 1600s named Pierre Magnol, and is a tree that has 90 different species in the U.S. alone." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.funzug.com
Tomorrow is "E" day of Donna McCommon's "Alphabet Challenge." I am ready and looking forward to viewing some "egg"cellent photo submissions; are you?
Have a safe and fun weekend!
