My Magnolia usually flowers in September when it’s springtime
It was definitely ODD to see magnolia flowers in January!!
Back in January, I looked up into the green foliage, saw the blue sky above but also a pink flower, which shouldn’t have been there!
Yes my magnolia was flowering – in January, in the middle of summer! To my knowledge that hasn’t happened before and my magnolia tree is many years old and huge.
I kept checking every few days and more flowers appeared, so I took a few shots as proof and shared on my Deb’s World Facebook page asking if anyone else had noticed a similar occurrence.
Quite a few people responded with similar stories and attributed it to all the rain we’ve had over summer, thanks to La Nina – but it really was quite odd and discombobulating (I love that word) to see.
Life is simply a mix of mayhem & magnolias, so embrace this gentle riot and gather flowers along the way.Kat Savage
Becky has her Squares challenge running for the month of February, where we can share any photo as long as it’s square, on the theme of ODD – #SquareOdds – I won’t be joining in every day, but when I have something odd to share I’ll be sure to post about it.
Odd can be interpreted lots of ways and like beauty it can be in the eye of the beholder. What you may find odd I may think is completely normal!
You can see Becky’s Day 4 post here – The Square Odds.
Have a great weekend and keep an eye out for some odd squares.
