It's that time of year

Every year I await the blooms on my magnolia tree.  The anticipation is almost too much and then when I have convinced myself that it is too early, I awake and look out the kitchen window to this.
And my heart skips a beat.

I have to run outside and breath in deeply the sweet aroma that only this bloom can produce.

A little bit of heaven.

So that is what I give gratitude for today.

This is one of the things that gives me great joy and it is a blessing.

I'm SO with you on that one. I love your magnolia tree too. I'll have to come see it! We're heading to AZ tomorrow, but lets do lunch again as soon as I get back!!

We haven't been in the basement since Wednesday, so all is good in the world. For now!
