stellar flowers


the beautiful flower of magnolia stellata, easily blighted by late frosts but bursting out now as the ground warms up. A native of Japan but very welcome in Cornwall.

Hey Spot!

When our magnolias bloom in late April I'll post a picture, very different from the Cornwall variety!

The camera I use is a Kodak EasyShare M853--has 8.2 megapixels. Cheap camera, easy software as I am somewhat digitally challenged. The pics come out great, tho, I think!
:0)

I am impressed by the phenomenal quality you are getting; we have to work very hard to get similar photos (mind you we are out of doors without a tripod). Spot and I lie on the ground hoping to minimise camera shake but tend to get soaked instead.
