A Fond Flower Farewell

We have enjoyed the beautiful magnolia flowers on our tiny bush.   After so much anticipation  we were not disappointed. However, such beauty does not last forever!

Starting with the first flowers to open, the petals are falling to the ground.  This flower still clings to its last remaining petal.  The fascinating flower center is completely revealed.

We still have a few more flowers to enjoy.  In this case a long goodbye is a very pleasant thing.  Already  leaves are beginning to open.  For us and the tiny magnolia this has been a special year!
