Reflecting on the Psalms
My neighbour's magnolia is in full bloom too.
It is a delicate flower taken singularly. En masse, on the tree, it is yet another glory that comes out of a branch/seed/pod.This is as close as I come to a religious statement.
Yes the magnolias are looking wonderful down in Sydney at the moment. There was a time when I wasn't keen on them but I like them a lot now ... I just wish the blooms on my tree were a little less singular and more like the mult-bloomed wonders I see in everyone else's garden.
