Dreamy Pink

The magnolia tree in our backyard peaked this week. So beautiful, but so fleeting. I watch the buds slowly grow as winter slips away. And then poof, a burst of pink gone so fast to make way for bright green leaves.




They remind me of a couture creation.


Something Red Carpet worthy



Something that Marie Antoinette would wear.


Or a Degas ballerina.


I wish they would stay just a little bit longer, but their sweet pink blooms are a reminder to enjoy spring while it lasts.


What's your favorite spring flower?

  8. Adore magnolias! And they ARE like a couture creation - what a beautiful analogy! I just told my husband that I would love to have some more flowering trees. So looking forward to the peonies - my favorite pink bloom.
