Magnolia buds

May 10

A friend comes over after school and we head out to the back yard. While the girls are playing I get to have a nice long chat with the mom. Our Magnolia trees are about to blossom and I am struck by their long tightly curled buds. Long as the shiny green leaves and pointed at the tip these will open into lovely white blossoms soon.

We sip our coffee, watch our girls and enjoy a Friday afternoon. Soon it will be summer and the days will be too hot and humid to be out running like this without some kind of water to cool us off. But for now it is perfect, just perfect.
