Weekly Photo Challenge: One

I love being in the garden early of a morning, the light is still soft and the sun doesn’t have the sting that you feel when outdoors mid-morning. The magnolia tree received quite a hammering in a November hail storm, the ice shredding leaves and destroying new growth so I was thrilled to see the emergence of fresh magnolia buds, the blooms don’t last long in the heat of the summer although that doesn’t prevent me from taking pleasure in their existence.

    • That particular tree has had lots of blooms over the year, I’m so happy that the hail didn’t destroy it completely. Spiders I can live without, but with the humidity and the surrounding bush it isn’t an option – they’re nicer than snakes :-)

      We had a lovely Christmas, nice and quiet. Hope you had a great Christmas as well.
