Great close-ups! Some how it put me in the mood for french fries.Is that the flower the Grateful Dead were singing about back in the

Lovely Magnolia bloom, they are in bloom here too. I never realized how similiar they are to water lilies before. I have a photograph of a water lily that looks so close to this one.
