Blooms and birds

On my morning walk with Otis and Riley I picked this beautiful magnolia bud at the park, brought it home and put it in water. The petals are slowly opening. The smell is heavenly ~ it's like having a magnolia air freshener throughout the whole house. Ahhhhhh



I also spotted some little hummingbirds this morning flitting around the back porch. I'm hoping to get a picture of the little guys soon.


Have a beautiful day!

I adore magnolia blossoms and leaves. They always smell a bit lemony to me.

Take care, my friend, and have a great weekend!

I will be in your boat next week taking my son back too the airport on Tuesday. It already seems to be flying by so fast.

((hugs)) Rosie

Aren't the magnolia blossoms gorgeous. We have a few growing in our neighbourhood and between the lilac and magnolia the scent is amazing. How wonderful that the hummers have arrived in your garden! I hope you can capture a photo. Have a great weekend Donna.
