nipped by frost,

the magnolia blossoms remain tightly closed,
their pink coats brushed with a brown stain.

So sorry! We never got that late-season frost this year, so our blooms were spared.

Hopefully Jack Frost has made his last visit of the season.

The image of the flag is what I'm concentrating on...it's a good way to start another week-a symbol of hope and freedom for many of us. And, according to Birdman's post...I'm smiling!

Ack - what a shame if those magnificent blossoms can't open. . .

That's so sad. We were afraid it would happen here this year but lucked out. Another creative and clever post, however!

Beautifully composed photo!

It's been a dangerous year for magnolia everywhere it seems. My little Scottish magnolia stellata has been touched by frost.

Your tale of magnolias' brush with late frost illustrates so well the never-ending struggle that living organisms face. (One of these days, I just know I am going to have a very embarrassing misspelling of organism . . . )

Frost and magnolias, an encounter that is not supposed to exist..

They might just pull through Brattcat, as log as there's not too much more frost.

Drat... that's too bad! Lovely shot though...

I hope that this doesn't mean they won't bloom now. Late spring frosts can do that. I hope you won't be deprived!
