Wordless Wednesday ~ Magnolia

 Yes, my favorite tree ever...
The site of which speaks of home to me.

Good morning, friends and welcome to Wordless Wednesday! 

I'm forever reminded by my tree,
 no matter the season or the blooms, 
 of  Helen Deutsch's poem,
"The White Magnolia Tree" ~

And the white magnolia grew and grew,
Holding our love within its core,
And every year it bloomed anew.

It's not a favorite poem of mine, truthfully, 
but the theme of a family's growth over time is compelling and of course,  
anything magnolia-related touches my heart. 
Who knew that the scraggly bush dumped in our front yard when we bought our home 17 years ago would come to be so loved and so significant? 

Thank you, friends, for stopping in today!

      Thank you so much....I never really had an affinity for magnolia til we moved in and I began to see its beauty in every season.
      The blooms are SO short lived though!
