blooming yard = happy black thumb!

despite my shameful neglect of my yard and my ominous past as a black-thumb plant-killer, the magnolia tree in our front yard has the most beautiful blooms. they only last a short while, so i ran outside with camera to capture the moment before the wind swept all of the petals away!
this is one of my favorite shots, but it was not a very pretty flower! the blooms almost begin to look burnt at the edges when they start to fall off, makes for very curious-looking photos!
loving my new camera and it's ability to zoom in very close! this is inside the magnolia bloom, you can actually see the pollen!
i did take some other fun pictures from around the yard, but they're still on the camera so that will have to be for another day...
