After finding quite a few magnolias in bloom during our visit to Columbus, Ohio, this past weekend, I'd hoped to find something similar on the trees in Mill Creek Park near us a day or two later. They're full of buds, but I found only a single one that had ventured forth. It's TGIF - hope it's a good one for all of you!

I think we all are enjoying the beauty of spring blossoms and the colors, the smells, the refreshing feeling it gives us after winter. Love the way you presented it with the composition, the pov where we look down into the heart of the flower. A real beauty.
