We have also been looking at our trees lately, and how each trees bark and leaves are different. Along our back yard we have magnolia trees. They look wonderful, but I do not enjoy their smell - so I am glad that ours don't bloom quite right. They seem to keep blooming with only one bloom at a time. I was also quite sure that 'blooming season' for magnolia's has past, so this was an interesting shot to capture at the end of June.
On another day while setting up our new pine straw bale garden (which I pray works), I was looking in the triangle bulb garden and I came across another flowering bulb which I have no idea what it is. I don't even remember planting these, but the sure are pretty.
Hope you have been enjoying nature even though the heat is starting to smother us. See you next week.
