Day 117: Magnificent Magnolia


Day 117: Magnificent Magnolia, originally uploaded by susanvg.

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.

  1. Susan, you must be so happy that the weather has started to warm up, and that things are beginning to flower and grow. Don't you think the enjoyment is in the contrast?
