The Magnolia Edition

I took a break today, to visit Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

BBG Magnolia Heart

I wanted to see the Magnolias before their burst of glory completely faded.

BBG Magnolia Brilliants

It was evident the peak arrived sometime earlier this week, but I managed to find a few gems.

BBG Magnolia Creamy

The crowds reflected the weather's cooperation, because Jeeper Joe, the joint was jumpin'!

BBG Zig Zag Magnolia

I did manage to do some spinning, some knitting, some fleece combing and some Alpaca fleece washing over the weekend.

BBG Magnolia Crested

I'll have some things to share as soon as these projects get their moment in front of the camera. How was your weekend?
