Daily Painting, "Southern Magnolia", 6x8, oil

Fragrant o'er all the western groves
The tall magnolia towers unshaded

Maria Brooks
1795 - 1845


Magnolia trees have always been a favorite of mine.  They are also a symbol of hospitality in the south, where you seem them on every corner.

They have thick glossy leaves and beautiful large creamy white blooms that perfume the air.
Thanks for stopping bye.  Enjoy your day!

Hi Carol! I love this . . . the flashes of orange against the soft subdued greens and colorful grays really caught my eye. There's a lovely feeling of yearning or offering that adds an emotional impact.

I've never seen one here in Phoenix. I did see them last summer when visiting my daughter in D.C. I was captivated, they are lovely.
