White Picket Fence and Porch Swing


Sesame Lodge
Joe and I were driving yesterday and I saw that gorgeous saucer magnolia tree blooming and I screamed "turn around." 
Joe made a quick u-turn and I got out of the truck and started snapping pictures in the middle of the street.


It is lovely.
I wanted to go inside the gate but I behaved myself.


White picket fence and a porch swing...oh my goodness.


Enough blabbering here's more:




Thanks for visiting Sesame Lodge .

I also photographed their neighbor's huge camellia bush that is full of blooms but
maybe tomorrow with some flea market snaps.

I really enjoyed your comments about my photograph in the previous post.

    I had one of those swings in my old house up in the country; spent many an hour reading blissfuly on sunny afternoons.

  10. OMGosh, the saucer magnolia is gorgeous. When I saw your post, I ran outside to check mine. It hasn't bloomed yet, which surprises me..and sure enough..it looks dead..nary a bud on it.
    Thanks for sharing the cute house (Sesame Lodge?) and is that Japanese holly in the last photo? Wow!
