A Brief Glimpse of a Magnolia Tree

Well I've been a bit out of commission lately - mostly because my son Joe, who up until this week, has never studied in his life, has decided to study. Which means he is hogging the computer ALL THE TIME.

But Cousin Deet just sent me this picture that she took when she was in town to see Fiddler, so I had to publish it. If I were halfway competent on this thing, I'd put her blog in as a link, but I'm not, so it's http://themarmeladegypsy.blogspot.com/
Anyway, as anyone who knows magnolias, they are beautiful for just a few days, so we were very lucky to have a magnolia in bloom at the same time our talented photographer was in town.

You've gotta be careful with those kids hogging computers/tvs/phones/cars/whatever. Before you know it, you'll be buying duplicates!

Beautiful tree -- hope you're still enjoying it in flower!

Ha! Apparently I have a magnolia tree in my own yard! I had no idea what it was, but it looks just like yours, blooms for a few days once a year and that's it. Alas, Deet was not at my house to capture the moment on film.

Thanks for the credit -- I would be negligent if I hadn't taken lots of photos! It was incredibly beautiful -- I wish it had been in my yard!

Tell Sharon next time I'm in town...!
