Hey Mr Blue Sky
I like flowering trees, but deciduous magnolias do not a thing for me most of the time. The other kind of magnolias have those cool glossy leaves that you can make boats out of, and these things just look like sticks all winter.
But then you get the ONE DAY out of the year when they're all blooming at once, and as you drive around town all you see are these terrific mounds of pink whipped cream, heaped up against a Fabergé blue sky. It's like getting whacked in the face with three pounds of rose petals.
It's also a good time for me to be taking allergy medication.
Like you couldn't tell.
