Walking out the front door one still morning at 5:00AM, the sweet fragrance of Magnolia flowers was overwhelming. As I walked through the yard, I noticed a number of flowering trees and plants in full bloom. My olfactory senses were in overdrive.
Over the past few weeks, I observed the blooming process of the Magnolia flower. I created a time-lapse of nature at its best. Using a DSLR camera set to record one still image every 30 seconds, I captured a total of 575 images over an 8 hour time span.
According to Symbolism Wiki, the magnolia symbolizes sweetness, beauty, and love of nature. Although it has no specific heraldic symbol, it has developed over time into a symbol of femininity, nobility, and perseverance.
