The title sounds like some Southern chic flick doesn't it! I am going out on a limb with this photograph today. I saw this last lonely blossom on my friend's magnolia tree the other day and just fell in love with the color of the bloom. She, on the other hand, was uneasy that I wanted to photograph a flower that was well past its prime. I assured her that it "looked sepia" and would be..... well.... different in a good way. Since I always seem to be on the edge of desperate for photos I was willing to give it a chance. So here you have the last magnolia of the season. Aging, but still gorgeous don't you think?
