Wordless Wednesday – has been renamed ‘Worth a Word’ Wednesday simply because I couldn’t stick to the rules of NO WORDS 🙂
Every year I think I take a similar photo to this one. I try to capture the magnolia flowers unfurling- I love Spring and I love our magnolia tree. It’s huge now and quite old but it flowers beautifully every single year, it never has a bad year. The weather on the other hand, sometimes has different ideas!
I always worry when I see the buds starting to open as it usually coincides with a spring storm or late snow or some other weather phenomenon, which means they get damaged and don’t get to show off their magnificence for very long.
Sometimes we go away travelling at this time of the year and my one regret is that I miss the magnolia flowering. We live a few hundred metres from a road and yet you can see the flowers from the road when it’s in full flowering mode. People often comment on how beautiful it is, and they’re right!
Today I’m off to stay with my mother up north for a week, so I decided to get this shot to remind me how it looked when I left and I can compare how it is when I return home, (and yes, we’re expecting rain/snow/wind over the next few days!!).
Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!!
