Sweet Magnolia




These are some images of the beautiful magnolia tree in my front yard. Can you believe that my husband wanted to chop this down when we first moved in?! It was a bit neglected at that point. I convinced him that it had to stay so he pruned it a bit and look at how lovely it is now! I've said before and I'll say it again - Men!

My good buddy has a tree like that and I always look for excuses to go and visit her while it is in bloom. If you were closer, I'd be dropping by unexpectedly just to peek at it!

Men! haha, While in the midst of writing my 7 weirdnesses (did I make up this word? i like it) My hubby was telling my daughters boy friend and she how the Red Wings won the game in overtime. Play by play! This has always amazed me, there memory for "some" things! : ) So I joked with them that we need a tag on funny things about men! : ) They Laughed! (i don't really want to do this tag).
I love you tree and photos!!! I pray your hubby is a quick study on trusting his beautiful wife : ) I bet he is : )
With kindness,
Mary

Beautiful magnolia!
Sadly ours was the victim of a prolonged april freeze.

Thanks for showing yours. This year I'll live through you. :)

Hi, Karla! You won my early drawing! For my birthday, I am giving you a china shard pendant. Please send me your address and I'll pop it into the mail.

Check out my site to see it. (If you'd rather have a different one, I have others to choose from)
