Each year when my parents' Chinese Magnolia is in bloom, Bradley and I take a picture in front of it. This year's photo was a rush job at dusk on St. Patrick's Day. I realized suddenly that the flowers were just starting to bloom, but with my class schedule, it was likely that the flowers would be gone by my first free night on Thursday. I'm glad we snapped these when we did because due to the finicky Tennessee weather, the cold snap killed all the blooms.
Happy St. Patty's Day!
I'm going to pick him up for this picture as long as I'm able
Something new this year
And now for a walk down memory lane...
I love the tradition, and I love the few precious days when this tree is in bloom. Hurry up warm weather and get here, the flowers are way ahead of you this year, and I'm tired of wearing my winter coat everyday.
