MAGNOLIA


My beauty lasts but a short time
and all I have, to you I give -
     My velvet blooms, capture in rhyme
     My beauty lasts but a short time
Before rains make my death knells chime
     I hope I lived my cause to live
My beauty lasts but a short time
and all I have, to you I give.

VELVETY MAGNOLIAS

One of the treats I look forward to when Spring comes is the blooming of the Magnolias.  Their velvety pink flowers opening up to the sky are a sight to behold.   I took some photos of these magnificent flowers yesterday to share spring with you and to thank you all for your friendship and kindness.
