Magnolia avancé

Trying to hasten the spring …

The squirrels did some late winter pruning and nipped off the tip off a branch on our front garden Magnolia tree … carefully trimmed and posed in a vase on the kitchen window we hoped, but didn’t really expect, that it would flower.

It came indoors as a tightly furled and furry collection of buds but it seems that the warmth has done the trick. Whether or not it will eventually become a fully open flower only time will tell, but for now this is rather attractive and a harbinger of good days ahead.
