Like candles in the wind today

The magnolia tree’s at that stage where the flowers haven’t quite opened, and the tree really did remind me of a candelabra today; albeit one swaying in the wind.

  1. It really does look like a candelabra! And I love magnolia trees and just wish the blossoms would stay longer than just a few days! Last time I missed the ones growing around here by about a day or two and was totally devastated. I had been planning a lovely shooting in a near cemetery. Ah well, hopefully next year! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxxxxxx

    • ๐Ÿ˜€ I know what you mean about the โ€œblink-and-theyโ€™re-goneโ€ blossom. Youโ€™d only know there had been flowers from all the brown mushy petals on the ground. Our tree is just far enough away from a photograph-taking spot that I need a long lens. Unfortunately itโ€™s also between us and our neighbourโ€™s house. Every year I feel I have to explain and apologise for standing on my verandah pointing a huge lens at their house (especially now as the husband is retired and home all the time).

      • Haha! I totally know what you mean! I feel that every time I take a picture of my flowers because the neighbouring house is quite near and Iยดm always afraid they think Iยดm taking their pictures! ๐Ÿ˜€ I always make sure to fuss around the flowers and not once blink in their direction. ๐Ÿ˜‰
