Lone Tulip, Magnolia and A Poem

Just one Tulip has shown up in a pot from last year.

Just one white Tulip

A couple of years ago, three trees down our lane were felled and we were very sad. We were told that they were diseased. In their place, last year, three small trees were planted which we were very happy to see. Today, we spotted just one bloom on what turns out to be a Magnolia – what joy!

Serendipitously, a friend today posted one of his poems with a photograph  of a  Magnolia and its ‘storm strewn’ petals and I found the accompanying poem very moving.

I shall not mourn the storm strewn magnolia
as fresh flowers unfurl below its boughs.
This is nature’s humble new hope
in a darkening world such as ours.

Kim’s Magnolia

Thank you, Kim.

P.S. I have sold the first of my glass pieces!!
