In following Saintseester's lead I'm doing a Fucking Floral Friday.

Now I apologize in advance.  These were all taken with my iphone so the quality won't be the best.  Also there's part of my arm, truck and garage in one or more of them.  But since I was doing it by myself and none of the branches are low enough for my short shit self that's what had to happen.  I was going to edit them but I'm sitting here doing this at 10:40pm on Thursday and I'm pretty damn tired and want to go to bed.  So once again, please accept my apology for the non quality.    

All flowers are on the South facing part of the tree as the most of the rest of the tree hadn't really done much.  Well, a lot of the East had but those limbs are way too high.  The buds on the North side had barely even begun to be exposed.  But they are now so by tomorrow they should be blooming.  Just in time for cooler weather again.  Plus rain.  Oh well.

Saturday's Magnolia
As you can see, they're just starting to open.

Sunday's Magnolia
It's amazing how quickly they open.

Monday's Magnolia

Tuesday's Magnolia

Tuesday's Close Up
Already getting slightly bruised looking

Wednesday"s Magnolia

Wednesday's Close Up
And even more so looking like they're ready to die and drop off.  Which many already had by the time I got home.

No photo(s) from Thursday because I didn't get home until almost 9:30 and then I had to make 3 blueberry fluffs.   So it was too damn dark out and camera on the phone doesn't have a flash.  Which sucks sometimes as some of these shadier photos show.

Media quote of the day:  I don't know. I'm starting to like this poetry idea now. "Here lies my beloved Zoë, my autumn flower, somewhat less attractive now that she's all corpsified and gross." - Wash - Firefly - Episode 1.6 - Shindig

Those are pretty pink magnolias. They do not look like the ones I grew up with in the deep south. Are they Japanese Magnolias or some other variant?
I am really glad you are playing along.

Hmmm, that's a good question. I have no idea. But all the Magnolia trees I see around these here parts look like these. I'll have to ask my mom. She's my plant expert.
