Today's Flowers # 72

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 2 GMT is the post time.

I again go to the archives to find a sign of Spring when the Magnolia Trees are in bloom. These were taken at the end of April just down the road from my house.

The Magnolia Tree does put out a neat flower and this one has great color as it blooms.

There is something about the blossoms on this tree that makes me smile. It looks like they smile back.

The Magnolia blossoms set ablaze
a tree to shows what will amaze.
So set your sights on the New Year
they will return, surely have no fear.

The April rains come and will surely make
the flower pop and they won't be fake.
The smell of the blossoms will fill the air,
Spring brings flowers for the tree to wear.
