Sugar Magnolia blossoms blooming...
The magnolia tree outside my bedroom window has three giant flowers and countless pods ready to burst open any day now. The first blossoms on the magnolia tree always make me happy and sad at the same time. Happy because, well, just look how beautiful they are!And sad because the flowers don't last very long in the hot California sun. In a few days, the beautiful while petals will be brown and dried and all over the front lawn.
I am not sad for long, though. There will be pretty flowers all summer to make my mornings worthwhile. But the first ones, they are always special.
