Magnolia on the Block


This is my favorite tree on my block. It's pretty much the only tree on my block so my preference works out nicely.

I love magnolia trees. There was one in front of my house where I grew up. Lovely for such a short time. Around here they're all losing their flowers already.

Last spring I decided I wanted to do a watercolor of magnolia blossoms but didn't get to it before they were gone. "There's always next year," I thought, and they're almost gone again. Oh well. There's always next year.

I had one in my back yard growing up so I'm fond of them as well. This one peaked on Monday or Tuesday and went ugly fast--the petals turn brown before they fall off so it's a pink/brown/bright green-from-the-emerging-leaves mess. It looks like a giant booger now.
