Quintessential Southern ... Wordless Wednesday

Does anything evoke the idea of “southern style” more than a Magnolia in full bloom? See a Magnolia brings to mind southern literature…To Kill a Mockingbird, Gone with the Wind, The Prince of Tides, Interview With a Vampire…you know, the classics.

This particular Magnolia was in an old cemetery close to downtown in Montgomery, Alabama which really reminded me that I was in the deep south. Old, old moss covered headstones and ancient trees with Spanish Moss draped about the limbs…quintessential southern.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the photo of the Magnolia and the southern thoughts that accompanied.  Sorry to respond so late, but that's how it goes sometimes in this business!  Thank you everyone.

Hi Mona, I used to think of the SouthEast as Magnolia country but seeing these stunning plants in so many areas of the US, It always facinates me how durable they are in the different climate zones they thrive in. Classic and beautiful photo.

Hi William, apparently not in Colorado though.  I need to keep posting photos for Belinda to see these southern beauties.

Great shot and great comparison to those movies... I love them all. You forgot "Steel Magnolias", though. Not as traditional, but one I still love.

#16, thanks for the comment.  We have a client who has successfully grown a banana plant here in the mountains...go figure!

Gretchen, Steel Magnolias may not be traditional but it sure is southern.
