Ephemeral magnolias and other things PINK

ephemeral \ih-FEM-er-ul\, adjective:
1. Beginning and ending in a day; existing only, or no longer than, a day; as, an ephemeral flower.2. Short-lived; existing or continuing for a short time only.


A friend of mine suggested I go back to a color theme once and a while when I have writer’s block. I thought about it and decided yes, that might be a good idea! I decided to go with pink today because I had a bouquet of mini pink carnations that opened up and were begging to be photographed. I also have a blooming magnolia tree outside my front door and the blossoms are fragile and ephemeral, coming back maybe once in the summer if I’m lucky. I must catch them on film before they’re gone, too.

So, for today, pink it is. What a lovely color.

  1. I LOVE pink, and I was just using shades of pink in my art today too!! It must be our spring fever putting the pink in our cheeks.


  2. so beautiful… I really enjoyed it.

    Strange thing, Elton John was in my dream a couple of weeks ago, but I don’t remember details.
