We have a Magnolia tree in our backyard. I know nothing about them except that I treasure the grace and elegance of the flowers it produces.
The Magnolia isn’t like the bold crocus or the slightly more timid tulip which are signals that the back of winter has been broken in this part of Wisconsin. The Magnolia arrives on nature’s stage only after the opening acts have performed. When it does there is almost a whoosh as our tree fills with blossoms. While there is a lot to treasure about the permanence of a special object, the promise of the annual return of this sultry beauty is my entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure.
