Já estava com saudades de Lisboa. Fez as pazes com o blogspot?
A rua da casa da minha infância era toda arborizada com magnólias, mas de outro tipo.

You have been missed my friend. Unfortunately, I'll be on hiatus for a week or two with family visiting.

We're doing fine and hope that all is well with you!

Gorgeous flowers and photo!

Beautiful!

Good to see you back!

Glorious return. We've missed you.

Glad to see you back! And what better way to burst back onto the scene than with this burst of Magnolia's. Nature wears the most exquisite jewelry. That bottom flower is amazing!

Very sorry to hear about the continuous hammering damage to your coastline. That is very sad. We finally got rain this weekend. Seems weather extremes are the new normal. I hope it finally inspires us clean up our act on the planet.

Welcome back JM. I love magnolias,
I have been given some magnolia seeds by a patient of the clinic where I work. Just not the right time to plant them yet.

Ceciel said...

Beautiful return !

Gunn said...

I am soooooo pleased that you and your blog are back again!

And what a great image to celebrate it with!

Joan Elizabeth said...

Glad to see you back again. I used to think magnolias were plain weird the way they flower on bare branches ( forgetting blossom does the same). But now I just love them anyway.

Jack said...

Beautiful! I enjoy seeing your sharp photos and beautiful sights.
