On A Low Branch, 6 x 6 " oil on archival panel, ©2013, Fay Terry
This is one of the flowers I photographed the other day in Southern Pines. The railroad tracks run in the center of the main street so each side has one way traffic and a wide middle area of beautiful plantings of Magnolia trees, Azaleas, and other flowers. The trees are very old and tall but fortunately still have most of their low branches so flowers dangle where they are easy to see and enjoy.
My husband loves these so we have six or seven Magnolia trees in our yard, too.
