Slowly, slowly and the Magnolias

A beautiful Magnolia tree

It's been a good day.  I painted quite a bit -- and the complicated
piece I'm working on is coming together -- slowly. I had a lovely walk
with a friend, picked up some gorgeous reference photo prints for
a future portrait of a couple I saw last night, who let me take their
photos. So kind.

And tonight I went on a long walk through a favourite neighbourhood
near the grocery store we visit.  And I got my 10,000! Yes.  The
goal.  It was so pretty.  Even at night, in the crisp evening air, the
flowering trees are magnificent.

Here's a photo of a prime example of a beautiful magnolia tree in
our neighbourhood.  

Have a loving your life day.

Stunning magnolia❣️❣️❣️❣️ I love magnolias. My small flowered pink one didn’t make it last year 😢 but my large white Victoria is doing great.

Hi Evelyn,

We are not actually growing one, but the city is packed -- incredibly
beautiful, and our long, chilly spring is keeping them going to
my delight.

I'd love to see your Magnolia. How beautiful!
