Messing with Messel

Early Magnolias, like 'Leonard Messel' above, are now in full bloom in Seattle.

I'm completely distracted. I'm trying to write about Nymans, the house and gardens of Leonard Messel and his family; I visited the place a couple of years ago, but nothing that I type down feels right. The only thing I have to offer are these pictures of his namesake Magnolia that I took this morning at the gardens of the Elisabeth C. Miller Library. I think I'll just leave it there.

Beautiful pictures. There's just something about flowers on bare wood, and these look a bit more delicate than other more flamboyant magnolia. Sometimes a picture is all you need. A thousand words and all that...

Vilken vacker magnolia!! Och så fint fotade!
Nej, det blev ingen koncert, inte ens ett besök denna gång.
Ha det gott!

Helt underbar! Jag ska nog testa den även om jag bor långt norrut...
