I took these pics yesterday of our magnolia tree is in the backyard. It was the first day it was in it's full glory. The open booms only last about a week (or less) then they shed all over the lawn - it's a major clean up. This is the first year I've gotten good pics of it, thanks to my new(ish) camera!
Today it's raining here in CT, but yesterday was glorious. And it's Friday, so I guess the rain is acceptable! I'll take it. Besides it's great for the plants after all the heat we had earlier this week! :)
