Foto Finish - White

Will I ever be organized?  It's Saturday already and again I'm scrambling for a photo.  This year Barbara is giving us optional themes, which believe me is easier than coming up with one on my own but still I'm never organized enough to have picked one or taken one before Saturday morning.  (is that a run on sentence?)

The theme this week is 'White'.  Now I know you're going to be disappointed but I'm not going to show you a photo of snow.  Even though we've had a mild winter so far (don't want to say that too loud), I'm tired of winter.  My photo is one I took last April in my son's yard.  I think they told me it was a magnolia or maybe I guessed it to be but when I checked this morning, I couldn't find a photo of a magnolia that looked quite like it.  Maybe you know.  Anyway, here it is.  I like the way the papery white petals look against the fence.  I think if you click on it, you can see it more closely.

Hope you have a great day.

So pretty. I have one of these in my yard. It's so pretty. I've never known the name of it either.

Your photo...brought a thought to mind the minute I saw it. We can smile even if there are no other smiles around. =)

Sweet little white flowers...

It looks like a Star Magnolia to me, but I could be wrong, it's been known to happen. :)

Thanks Danielle. I googled it and you're right. It's definitely a Star Magnolia.

I like the white flowers against the white washed fence. Very nice photo.

I'm ready for spring too!
