I love the Japanese Magnolia, it is so pretty and one of the first trees to bloom here in MS.

The first photo is stunning. I'm not sure if it's called the stamen, but it looks shy and seems to be hiding behind the petals. Happy Lunar New Year to you!

Love its pastel color. I remember going to the Huntington this time of the year when the magnolias are in bloom.

One word: GORGEOUS

I visited Hong Kong for Chinese New Year in 2007. I remember those lanterns vividly :)

Everyone loves to receive flowers. Give loved ones the gift that will last forever and not wilt away in a matter of weeks.

That is so beautiful. The first shot is my fav. Too bad here is too cold for that plant:)

Oh, they are gorgeous, I hope we'll see them soon.
I love those silky petals and their beautiful shade of pink-pirple.
Lovely macros!
