Magnolia flowers

Magnoli buds agj

What makes you smile?

A little over a week ago I found magnolia branches studded with buds, and I bought some hoping they would bloom, and as you can see they did:)

I love magnolias, delicate flowers on bare branches blooming in early spring. The flower also reminds me of my time in South Korea, where the trees grow in the wild. Week-end hikes during spring you happen to pass a few of these threes in full bloom, they always got me in a better mood.

Hope the flowers made you smile, they make me smile:)
