Around Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, morning of June 16th.
I liked the imperfection at the top of this bloom.
A thistle, with such an interesting shape and so many textures.
I’ve always liked the alien look of the Button bush flowers, but they have taken on a new feel in the post-COVID world after we’ve seen so many magnified viruses.
Many of the older Magnolia trees don’t seem to have bloomed as well this year as I remember. This was a good specimen.
I don’t know what this is, but I do like it.
