ATLANTApix: Magnolias in Bloom

Magnolia Blossom
Magnolia blossom
All over Atlanta luxurious Magnolia trees are in bloom, an event I always look forward to all year long.

You'll see majestic Magnolias planted along Intersates 20, 75 and 85 driving through downtown Atlanta; peppered throughout wooded neighborhoods like Buckhead and Druid Hills; and of course at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, which also features the Magnolia blossom as its logo.

Of course, since 1989 I can hardly see a Magnolia bloom without thinking about the film Steel Magnolias, starring Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Julia Roberts (from Smyrna, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta!), Olympia Dukakis, Daryl Hannah, and Dolly Parton. Although set and filmed in Louisiana I know quite a few women in Atlanta who also are "Steel Magnolias."

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!

It is imperative that we read blog post very carefully. I am already done it and find that this post is really amazing. I am a new learner for racing. I would like to know the VIR Race Track as I know VIR is a world class track that everyone enjoys riding.
