I really wanted rain for my wildflower seeds that I had planted, and a couple of days ago I got my wish. In buckets. And with practically gale force winds. So that was the end of our beautiful magnolia tree blossoms for this year. I had managed to take a few photographs of the flowers a little while ago, after rain also, but not such destructive winds. Here is one of them, and so you can see what my view has been for the past few weeks (longer than usual this year) I am sharing a photo of the full tree below. When we moved here, 24 years ago, this tree was just over 6 feet tall. It reaches almost to the top of the roof of our two story house now. It’s almost overpowering with the scent of magnolia when the flowers are in bloom. One of the prettiest sights (couldn’t catch a photo, though, I’m sorry to say) is when the bright yellow male goldfinches are perching among the pink and white blooms. Such a feast for the eyes. Enjoy your day, my friends. A flower a Day #256
