Nothing is anticipated more around here in the Spring than the appearance of the magnolia flowers. The scent that pervades the air is intoxicating (and it is so poorly imitated in scented products) The exotic petals are such an unlikely sight, too, sitting as they do on bare branches so early in the Spring. There is a reason, apart from the obvious that I call this Mini Pink Magnolia. It is a small magnolia flower, much smaller than those on our tree and the magnolia itself is not much bigger than a large bush. It’s not really mini, more ‘small’ but that didn’t work for me as a title. However I have to differentiate between flowers as I will share similar ones and we need to be specific (to keep the links working). So at last the first ones are out in the village, and here is my first share. Our own are soon to be fully out and if we can avoid a heavy wind and rain – like yesterday and today – we will have a wonderful week or so with this delight right outside my kitchen door. Although it seems hard to find joy at this time, a simple flower can do it for me. And I hope it does the same for you, my friends. A Flower a Day #231
