Signs of Spring

My mother in law has this wonderful magnolia shrub. It is an amazing shrub in that it blooms before the leaves arrive on the branches.  I have been watching it for the past few weeks anticipating the blossoms erupting. I was delighted when I looked out the patio window before dinner last night and saw that over half the blossoms had come and been ready for me to photograph :)!

I used my Hoya Close Up Kit and tried to grab as many pics as I could. It was a windy night so I am thankful that in spite of that, I still was able to get a few detailed shots.
