  8. Hello, walking with your dog and out in nature sounds peaceful. The magnolia is a lovely bloom, we are starting to see some here too. Stay safe and well! Take care, wishing you a happy day!

  9. wow that quote is so true - never read it before. Beautiful bloom! Hope your day is sunny and happy. We have sun and a warm up and it's great.

  10. Carol, I came to your blog from your comment on Tamago's blog. Your photography is amazing, and I'm happy to have discovered your blog. But today I am on a quest and thought you might be able to help. You see, TAMAGO entered a giveaway on my blog, but did not include her email address, and I can't find one on her blog. I was hoping I could impose on you to leave up this comment to let her know, if she happens to comment on this post, that she has actually won the giveaway (a very expensive kitchen knife). Thank you!

  11. So many wonderful blessings. Stay safe!

  12. Nice list of thankfuls. Stay healthy.

  13. Oh Carol! I've seen some Magnolia trees in California when I lived there for a few months and I am so amazed by its flowers but I don;t get to see them so closely because those trees were high! Now I see through your photo how interesting it looks especially the hairy sepals! Oh those are beautiful! Do they have a scent? because in lotions I get to see Magnolia scent but not sure if it's really coming from the flower at all. Love it and beautiful list of Thanksgiving Carol!


  14. A beautiful way to begin a day...being thankful. Wonderful post Carol. Good to hear Mz Zoe is healing.
