With temperatures reaching 30C (86F) today, spring burst forth. Daffodils, tulips and magnolias have all gone into production, their blossoms baked into blooming by the sun. Magnolias that were closed in the morning sat on branches like butterflies sunning their wings. A few have already shed some of their petals. Tomorrow we expect more seasonable weather which, hopefully, will slow down the process so we can enjoy these magnificent magnolias a little longer.
