It's around 70 degrees and starting to feel like spring down here in Raleigh. Since those of you in cooler climates may not have many flowers blooming yet, I thought you might enjoy this image, Pastel blossom. Nothing says spring like a freshly blooming Japanese magnolia! There isn't an exciting back story to this photo; I shot it in my neighbor's front yard. But I keep coming back to it again and again, because it just makes me happy.
