I Heart macro - Magnolia

Hello dear readers,

I think this is a type of large Magnolia...the flower is as wide as my outstretched hand; so beautiful.
If you know it's real name can you tell me?



Linking up to I Heart Macro..for those who love close up and macro photography.

That is so lovely. I just love the color. Sadly, I don't know the name of the flower.

it certainly looks to be a magnolia I agree, but as to what name...?

Beautiful, Jenni! There was a magnolia tree of that kind in front of my parent's house where I grew up in the Los Angeles area, so you'd think I'd know :~/ I miss it, but there are pink ones here in Oregon, which I love :~)

It looks like a magnolia to me too, but I'm not one for knowing my flower types so. . .that wasn't helpful at all was it!?

Anyway, it's a beautiful shot! Happy new year!! :)

Jenni those pictures are fantastic! I love seeing the stames (?) laying on the petals and then the close up of them are awesome - love the pink and cream!
