As I am on the mend and just beginning to be able to put weight on my foot with the assistance of a crutch (and walls, and door knobs, and counters, etc.), this week will consist of re-posting old posts/photos; ones that may not have been seen in a long time or even brand new to some of you. These images are from the magnolia tree in our front yard and were taken a couple of years ago when spring decided to come earlier than it did this year – no one had ever heard of a “polar vortex” back then. Now the tree is just beginning to open but by the end of this week I bet it will look like these images.
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. ~Claude Monet
