Magnolias







I took these pics on our vacation to southern Indiana a few weeks ago. The weather turned extremely warm and made these beautiful and fragrant blooms come out in abundance. Sadly though, they don't bloom for a very long time...

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

  3. The magnolias are almost gone in Germany, after a nice few warm days, we got grey and cold weather again. As for my favorite flower: the lily of the valley :)

  4. What lovely photos! Those Magnolias are such a beautiful colour.

    Hmm, my favourite flower? I have so many!
    A wonderfully scented pink Rose, or maybe a Peony in full bloom.I love pink cherry blossom and lavender, and....I could go on and on. :-)

    Thank you for visiting my blog Heidi, as it has enabled me to find yours too.

    It is really nice to meet you.

  10. Liebe Heidi,
    wunderschöne Bilder sind dir gelungen mit den schönen Magnolien auf dem blauen Himmel-Hintergrund. Bei uns gibt es zur Zeit keinen blauen Himmel, nur viele Wolken und kalt.
    Ein schönes Wochenende und liebe Grüße

  17. Most beautiful Heidi! You captured the very essense of the magnolia blossoms.
    Sadly, our blooms came out too soon followed by a killer frost. There will be no blooms this year.
    My favorite flower would be the sunflower.
    Hugs Rosemary...xx

  22. Geierwalli? War das mal ein Heimatfilm? Oder ein Buch? Ich erinnere mich an Berge und Almen und viel Leid und Traenen, wie das eben mal so war in Heimatfilmen. Ach, wo ist die Zeit geblieben.

    Thank you for finding me and following me. I'm returning the favour herewith and hope that we'll share a comment now and then and perhaps even an email or two.

  25. Hello, Heidi.

      Your heartwarming work provokes my impression.
      The passion for the art.  It is universal.

      Thank you visit to the garden of the cherry blossoms.
      The prayer for all peace.

    Have a good weekend. From Japan, ruma ❀

  26. What exuberant blooms of magnolias! They look like singing the praise of their life of spring.

    Thanks for your visit. I’ll follow you, too. Thank you for the comment to my contribution post to “View Japan” which is shared by the three Japanese so far, too.

  27. Beautiful pictures!
    Thanks for following me.
    Magnolia is one of my favorites. It comes before the roses in the spring here.
    Here in eastern parts of Norway, it blooms on sunny place now.
    I had a Magnolia 'Susan a few years ago. I live in zone 5, that Magnolia can survive in. After five years, froze my beautiful Magnolia.
    I think they love to bathe in the sun!
    But I have many roses that thrive in my garden!
    Thanks for sharing!
