The Magnolia tree in the garden is beyond beautiful.
Just look at it!
The petals change colour and shape as their time in bloom draws on…
I love peering between the petals and looking at the carpet of yellow primroses below.
Spring delight! And our pheasant-in-residence agrees!
Pink. Perk. Pert.
Shining shy up to the light,
Tiny sheets of round down around.
Slips through fingers,
cool and waxy.
Cups of secrets rooted in
ever-changing shoot stems.
