I am the princess of Magnolia.

Magnolias are said to be closely linked with beauty and perseverance, and the best is it's association with nobility. aw yeah. Royalty flowa's. I totally think magnolias are just the prettiest things ever and make me feel so regal. Does it makes sense if I think they're classy? No, it doesn't, maybe more like elegant, you can't really call a flower elegant either. We'll stick with pretty. It's like they really are from a far away place though(a magical kingdom?), outshining and out-prettying the evergreens and maples it shares the yard with. Despite the gross bed of brown flower remnants it later leaves, the pretty pink blooms are definitely worth the later gross factor.

And at springtide, when the apple-blossoms
brush the burnished bosom of the dove,
Two young lovers lying in an orchard would
have read the story of our love;

Would have read the legend of my passion,
known the bitter secret of my heart,
Kissed as we have kissed, but never parted as
we two are fated now to part.

- Oscar Wilde, Flower of Love.

I'm going to wear something pink tonight.
