A Little Vacation


I will be out of blog touch for the rest of the week.

Our Star Magnolia has blossomed and from
the distance appears as a bride in her
pure white gown.

However, just like everything in our life,
nothing is as it seems.

Take a closer look. Click on the flowers to your
right and see all the colors that nature
combined in a little white flower
to please the senses.

Pink? Yellow? Green?
Do you see shades of mauve and
lavender?

Have a good week everyone,
and.... give yourself a gift.
Take a moment to enjoy the beauty
in the world around you.

Mother Nature is never as simple as a white flower. She is much more beautiful than that.

Enjoy your trip and hurry back safely.

Dang, Pamela, I left a LENGTHY comment here, and I thought of something to come back and say, and it's GONE????! Shoot :(. Okay...lemme try to re-create.

First, hope you're having a FANTABULOUS time with Amanda (and Karmyn?). I read y'all's comment on the "Sparrow Guts" post wrong at first, lol. I thought you were HAVING a contest to see whose pee smelled bad first, not that y'all "check" to see whose is worst first when you eat asparagus...!

This post made me a bit homesick for S.C. We had a beautiful Star Magnolia in our front yard, and this reminded me of that. The lady who had owned our home for years prior to selling it to us was a master gardener. The first year we lived there, it was a delightful surprise every time one of her perennials would erupt. We always referred to it as "Henrietta's yard"...it was never completely ours ;).

Oh, yeah...

Purpleworm's comment. Gee...guess she doesn't know I'm a long-time reader of yours (but more likely could care less). Why, I think I'll go over and introduce myself :).

(If this ends up being a duplicate comment, please delete the other :) ).

You will be missed! Haven't been able to check blogs lately, and will be on "blog vacation" next week.

Thanks for showing us what slut that little bridal flower really is!

C said...

Gorgeous flowers - take a nice little break.

James Cooper said...

Oh, neat. It's those subtle touches in everything that can make all the difference. Gotta appreciate all the little things (but don't sweat the small stuff :-D).

Bonnie B said...

That star magnolia is absolutley beautiful! I've got to get one.

kate said...

what a lovely post! I hope you have a great trip!

ablondeblogger said...

It's so ironic you posted this. Amanda and I just took a walk along a trail near us and it was so beautiful to be out among nature! And, I saw this beautiful tree with blooms just like the ones in the picture and wondered what it was. Now I know! :)

hope your vacation break is/was fabulous!

Julie said...

Beautiful flower! You are so observant. I would love to take a nature walk with you. I tend to see things like this as well, McD just keeps on truckin'.

Have a great vacation!
