Magnolia Summer - ODBDSLC63; MMSC107
Recently, John and I purchase a couple of Magnolia trees for our property. The boys planted one by my Mother's home and the other outside my back door. The last few days they have been opening their showy buds to reveal the most beautiful ivory blossoms. I love Magnolias and I LOVE to use their shiny leaves at Christmas time to decorate our home. Last December, when we went to Colonial Williamsburg, I drooled over all the beautiful trimmings. This beautiful magnolia blossom is from a set by Petaloo. I added some trims (from Petaloo as well.) I them pulled out my trusty pine branch punch and added some "sticks." This time I let the scripture be the focus... Song of Solomon 2:12... I know I feel like singing when I see those delightful blooms...
Here's a better look at the trimmings...
