Magnolia Blossom

Inspired by this clutch of beautiful ttv photos by Alli, I thought I'd share a little springtime loveliness of my own.

These are of a magnolia tree in the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh, which is currently in exuberant blossom. My friend informs me of an eighty year old lady who calls blossom 'flourishes'; I think I might refer to it as such from now on.


  1. Beautiful! I love the idea of trees having "flourishes" - I think I want to use that, too!

  2. I love the blossom and the contrast it has with the blue sky.. There's some beautful cherry trees in 'flourish' that I pass on my way to and from work. They make me smile.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - I adore reading them! I shall endeavour to reply (in comment form), so do check back.
