Promise 2


Here's the other promise ... the port wine magnolia flower. This is a very substantial shrub with many of these tiny buds on it. I don't think the flowers open up much more than this, but I'll keep an eye on them to be sure. Regardless, they put out a very strong bubble gum perfume.

Reflection:
Psalm 145:13 (New International Version)
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all generations.
The LORD is faithful to all his promises
and loving toward all he has made.

  1. The magnolias on campus open up like this but continue to open up further and further until fully open and then the petals start to fall.

    This one seems to have its cycle truncated somewhat.
