The Creation of Beauty is Art

Love of beauty is taste.
The creation of beauty is art.
...Ralph Waldo Emerson

I discovered a Southern Magnolia tree right across the street from our house! Now I go check the blossoms often. They are so large and interesting.

You are so lucky the blooms are at eye level, our Magnolia’s full of blooms but it would take a ladder to get to them. I love your edit of this flower.
