This is not crochet related... but I love these magnolia blossoms...
It is an about 90 years old magnolia tree at my grandmothers garden...The tree used to be much bigger, but a few years ago almost 2/3 of the branches broke down, after heavy snowing, with the leaves still on. The last picture shows the full tree in its origin.
Isn`t it beautiful? Imagine standing under it with the fragrances from thousands of blossoms :-)
