Magnolia Buds

"Magnolia Buds"

I wanted a pussy willow in the garden, but we couldn't find the ideal location. Last summer, we planted a Royal Star magnolia, anticipating beautiful blossoms in the spring. What a delight to discover that the fuzzy fore bearers of those fragrant flowers are quite reminiscent of pussy willows. Since spring is taking its time this year, every subtle glimpse of the changing season is a blessing!
