Magnolia Trees in bloom … swoon ! {Gettysburg, PA}

On our way home from the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, we decided to just relax and wander a bit on our way home. We ended up in Gettysburg, PA to see what we could see. We ended up at the Gettysburg Cemetary, across the street from the battlefield. It was very moving just BEING there. I have many photos which I need to work on and will post once they are finished.

There were a few huge magnolia trees in the cemetery which were juuuuuuussssssttttt about to bloom. I love magnolias in general, but absolutely adore the buds on the trees.

The sun was dipping low in the sky, turning the light golden which highlighted the deep magenta pink of the blooms. Here are a few shots, more to come. I was tickled with how well the bokeh accents the gorgeous buds !
