Magnificent Magnolias 5/9/2010

24/12/2009 Extreme Close-Ups

I found this beautiful Magnolia tree growing in my sister in law’s yard. Some of the blooms were a little weather beaten – but looked so majestic and pure.

A New Life Begins For Us
With Every Second.
Let Us Go Forward Joyously
To Meet It.
We Must Press On,
Whether We Will Or No,
And We Shall Walk Better
With Our Eyes Before Us
Than With Them Cast Behind.
