Baby Magnolia ...



“All art is but imitation of nature.”
                      ~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca
                                       ~ 4 B.C.- 66 A.D.
Like awakening from a dream, the first breaking bud on my favorite magnolia tree at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania springs to life on an April evening.

In The Fire Of Spring ...


"May this tenderness cling
When the fire of spring
Is a memory
May you still be my own
When a hundred years have flown ...
Love me tonight."
                                    ~ "Love Me Tonight"
       ~words & music by Don Robertson
         from the film "Fun In Acapulco"
         ~ recorded by the great
                           Elvis Presley, 1963

A beautiful blossom and breaking bud are in tandem in the fire of spring as the April sun sets on my favorite magnolia tree at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Evening Kiss ...



"April love ...
Every star's a wishing star that shines for you,
April love is all the seven wonders,
One little kiss can tell you this is true."
                                                         
                                                  ~ "April Love"
                                                            ~ Theme song from the 1957 film "April Love"
                                                     ~ Music by Sammy Fain, lyrics by Paul Francis Webster
                                                               ~ Recorded by Pat Boone

Sunset light kisses this beautiful breaking bud
on my favorite magnolia tree on a beautiful
April evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Stirring ...


"Love is the only flower that grows and blossoms
without the aid of the seasons."

I love magnolia trees, and this breaking bud shows spring was stirring 
this weekend at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
