That Magnolia is stunning.

I see it too - it's the Phantom of the Opera! Spooky. But what a magnificent magnolia. They are difficult to grow in our sub-tropical climate, but they grow beautifully further south in Sydney and Melbourne. Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks everyone! & yes I celebrate Easter. Sorry I haven't been visiting lately. I will try & catch up later tonight.
I should have mentioned this shot was a straight out of camera shot. I couldn't make it any better. I was so happy when I discovered this as I was downloading my photos. It was like a special Easter gift.
Happy Sunday everyone!

will you tell today?

Take your pick of shadows:
Downspout
Shadowy Toilet!
