We got back from a manic spring break trip to San Diego on Saturday night. As mentioned in my last blog post, my magnolia was nearing its peak right before we left. I was worried we would miss it. But we returned to a bouquet of blooms. The peak must have slowly unfurled over the last week, so we still get a few days of glorious pink. Plus a bonus: the plum trees in the back yard blossomed while we were gone, and the Bradford pears in the side yard as well. I look out my bathroom window to white petals so thick it seems like snow on the trees.
San Diego was fun, if tiring. I will report more on that in the next few days. Right now I am dealing with the fun of getting jet-lagged children to go to sleep!
