I Heart Macro – Magnolias


Its time for another I ♥ Macro Sunday!

I went to the library last Thursday to drop off an audio book I’d listened to while commuting to work.  A garden near the entryway had several magnolias that were in full and glorious bloom.  So gorgeous that I had to share pictures with you!

I was fascinated with the starburst-like shape of the reproductive structures of the magnolias.

    OH wow, I almost could have used Magnolia or Tulip tree today, I used Camelia because the Magnolia blooms weren’t open quite enough for any good pictures. Maybe next week!! Love them!!!

    Lovely shots. And look how tall those pines are and how blue the sky is in the background – beautiful. I love the center of the magnolia – very nice macro!
