Sugar Magnolia.

I love botanical illustrations, so a few may pop up from time to time. I hope you don’t mind and you find them as intriguing and gorgeous as I do.

These are by a fellow named Pierre-Joseph Redouté from his book of prints Les Roses. He completed three volumes between 1817 and 1824.

As I type this, I’m listening to Air. Not sure why, but it feels utterly appropriate. Floaty and beautiful.
