Pink wonder




Speaking of girl power, seeing the blossoming Magnolia, I thought of dresses, lovely, delightful gowns to wear at a spring ball, the prom or the wedding. Not for me, but for the girls around me, who aspire for one or the other! And for the girl within, the forever girl, who still likes to dress in such a gown once in awhile....

Don't we all have a little Cinderella dream hidden inside?


Yesterday I picked a few of the low hanging branches and the blossoms were all closed tightly, this morning they had bloomed and opened to such glory!
And although it's a cliche, I still liken the blossoming girls to flowers!

These years, when our girlish body and soul awakens, 
becoming aware and ready to be released into the world!


There is tenderness and a little rawness, still the last moments of growing up within...

There is nothing lovelier to behold!

A gown can be all this, representing the form inside, gentleness, hope and beauty!


Like the Magnolia blossoms, full of beauty and a reminder of the passing time!

  2. Hello Victoria:
    What an absolutely delightful post this is. The Magnolia flowers really do resemble ball gowns and do remind us of the presentation of debutantes in years gone by. But, can there be any sadder sight than a Magnolia blossom caught in an early frost? That happened so often in our Herefordshire garden and one knew that a whole long year had to be waited for this very special spring show to give its next performance.

  3. Just gorgeous. As a young gal, I danced and one year, I was "Whipped Cream" and wore a frothy confection which reminds me of how sweet our youth is.
    I love your connection and inspiration-
