Rush to the Magnolias

Magnolias bloom early. As stunningly artful as they look, magnolia flower petals are so heavy that they drop quickly, leaving little time to enjoy them. An especially breezy day or quickly passing storm can reduce the blooms to scattered single petals, a shorter lifespan than usual.

I had forgotten the sweet smell of magnolia blossoms until I stood beneath this beauty. It occurred to me that I have not smelled a magnolia tree since I was a child. What a pity. Do take time to stop and smell the magnolias.
