More magnolias, dream and coming in like a lion

- A Japanese Magnolia tree in Monticello, Florida. I love how the blooms drop off and scatter around on the ground.

- It was bound to happen. Watching a glorious sunset over a mountain through a window and drawing a friend over to show him how beautiful it is. I am composing in my head how I will write about it for my blog when I wake up. Just dreaming.

- Powerful thunder and lighting with lots of rain during the night - March came in a like a lion once again.

You are getting the weather that saw February out around here and we're having a peaceful and quiet March beginning:)

That magnolia tree makes me want to have Spring right here and right now.

Sunsets during a quiet evening in suburbia, especially when you're near Mother Nature at her finest, is fine food for the soul.

I like lions, but could do with some lambs right about now.

LL Cool Joe said...

Nice dream! :D Shame you had to wake up!

So you dream about blogging? That's dedication!

I love those trees, even though pink isn't my best color.

Our February went out like a lion, but by the time midnight arrived, it was calm.

Louvregirl said...

Wow. I love it when the magnolia trees are in bloom. I just love to stand under those trees. Now~ I can't wait until our trees are blooming!

Granny Annie -

It's beautiful here this morning - the calm after the storm. Everything looks washed clean.

G -

It seems a little early for all this. I spotted one of these trees blooming near my office yesterday - so it's made its way that far north already. We've had a strange few warm days, so Mother Nature thinks it's time to unleash the blossoms, I guess. I hope you get the nice weather soon, too.

FB -

That was some storm last night - there was a lightning strike right behind my house.

Joe -

I laughed at myself when I woke and realized that I had been wording my blog post in my head within my dream.

Kenju -

It was probably gone by midnight here, too - I went to bed really early last night.

TALON said...

I love that you are having serene dreams while the storm crashes around you, Lynn :)

I love the blossom puddles - one of the best parts of Spring (which is really early for you! And, yes, I'm jealous!!)

Jannie Funster said...

And who-oh-who was the dream friend? Someone dreamy, I think?? One with a handsome smile and sweet ways? :)

And to see that magnolia tree in bloom is a wondrous, wondrous thing. Thanks for sharing it!! It was fun to enlarge. Do the blossoms smell good?


Sara said...


It's funny that put that particular picture up. I just spent time taking photographs of the Japanese Magnolia in my yard. It is in full bloom and so, I'm enjoying it because I know the flowers do not last long.

Please do share the dream:~)

Can you pass on some of that rain. It keeps going North of us. I like it when it rains.

What a nice "three." Have day to you:~)

The tree like a sunset it blooms striking the ground like rays of light.

Dreaming of and written well for friend or friends.

March the month of life some 62 years ago. Some said hard times were ahead for those born then. I say God been good.

Travis Erwin said...

I'm eager for spring but it hasn't arrived her in the Texas Panhandle yet.

Lynn said...

Talon -

Blossom puddles - I like that. :)

Jannie -

Just some man that I knew to be a friend in my dream. Do you ever do that? Conjure up people you've never seen before?

You know - I don't know how those smell. I took the pic from the car window. :)


Sara -

It was lovely in your neck of the woods this weekend - lots of blooming trees around.

It was a lovely day today - all washed clean.

Ellis -

I say God has been good, too. Especially if he put wonderful people like you in it. Happy birthday month!

Travis -

It has sure landed in the Florida Panhandle - I'll bet it's just a matter of days.

Snaggle Tooth said...

What a pretty tree- Thanks, don't think I've ever seen one.
What a great dream, wish you could take a pic n have it when you awaken! Well, you did get to write about it! I haven't dreamt of blogging at all yet- Well, I got a sunset on ESR today for you!
Sorry the blustery weather found you there today- perhaps the lamb will show up soon!

Lynn said...

Snaggle -

I was just over at your blog - beautiful photo. And I wish I could have taken a photo of my dream - but I do remember it well.

I hope you have a great day!

Jannie Funster said...

Lynn, yes I am a dream conjurer too. Dreams -- so strange sometimes. Like, REALLY weird things like singing goats in mine. Seriously!
