Southern Magnolia - Ponte Vedra Beach Florida - Whiteiswhite Wednesday - Haiku

in whiteiswhite •  5 months ago

Today's whiteiswhite challenge theme is FLOWERS – everyone's favorite, I believe!

sweet magnolia

you are purity and grace

pride of the deep south

In the springtime in Florida, nothing pleases me more than to see the white blooms of the Southern Magnolia (Magnolia Grandiflora) contrasting against the dark green leaves way up high in the magnolia trees. The perfume of the blooms is heavenly!

Magnolia's are one of my favorite flower's.
Very pretty photo, thank you for sharing this moment with us.

Beautiful shot! I love the perspective from down below with the light coming through the petals.


Thanks! I have many shot at the traditional angles, but this one is different!

It's very beautiful.. I love it

Great shot! The placement of the Magnolia against the blue sky further emphasizes its pure whiteness. Very nice!

Great photo. Of course it makes me start singing this:

the shot looks amazing, thanks for sharing.

Wow!! This is beautiful! You have great eyes! Nice shot

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing @dmcamera

That is such a beautiful flower, the white is really rich and creamy. I love the angle you chose as well - really highlights the flower and quite different as well

Thanks for your very detailed review! I love these flowers. They so represent the OLD SOUTH! Thanks for the Resteem too! You Resteem a lot. :-) I can't find your latest posts. :-( You must be busy running around to coffee shows! :-)

That is a stunning shot!


Thanks for the kind words!

Such a powerful statement in limited words.
