Let us admire these flowers for another moment. Their scent was the right antidote for the winter blues.

Ah Spring! Went out out see the magnolias here on Sunday, but they hadn't quite opened up yet. Thanks for the preview!

@Damion Coe: It's always surprising what a little distance of a few (90) kilometres does to vegetation. Bonn is at least two weeks ahead.
Wow, it really is Spring where you are! Gorgeous magnolias -- I can almost smell them!

@MissT: The scent was indeed lovely! Too bad they bloom only for a short time!
These blooms are quick to fall but all the more precious for that . . celebratory !

@DIMITRIOS: Many thanks, Dimitrios!
Oh,dear! Oh,dear! You're killing me with these superb blooms! If I were you.....I'd take the tree home! I love the tall image that gives me the illusion of being just there, on the branch, close and personal!

@Ina: Danke sehr! Ich freue mich darauf! :)
Yes, as of a year ago I had one of these in my front yard. Beautiful and a spicy fragrant - then down come the petals making a mess and clogging the guttes....ah spring! Beautiful light here.
