After being gone for over 10 days, we were amazed by how much Spring had sprung! All the flowers were coming on in their glorious,yellow's blues and purples!
As we pulled into the driveway weary from a long plane trip..an intoxicating scent filled the air. The Saucer Magnolias were blooming. Suddenly, I was thrilled to be back in Kentucky!
I have two of these fragile "perfumed beauties". Fragile because of the timing of when they open up. Often we will be hit with a frost and in that instant they are gone. But not this year.
Definetly these two trees have suffered with last year's ice storms but they have proved their worth for the Spring of 2010.
Now dearly a week since our return....the blossoms are falling. Drifting through the air like snowflakes and littering the ground with white and pink petals.
I am so thankful that I was home in time to breathe in the aroma and catch the petals as they fell. One of the many joys of Spring!
