Magnolia

Last week, the magnolia buds had begun to bloom. There were beautiful whites, pale pinks, purples and dark pink. At the rate the blossoms were opening I had figured Saturday they would be spectacular and I planned to take time for a photo shoot. Wednesday was sunny and warm but the weather forecast for the Thursday was for rain.

Rain ruins the show. It knocks many of the petals off and turns the one left on the trees browns. It was still light on the way home from work. But it was sprinkling a little.  It was a now or never moment when I saw this Magnolia Tree. There was time for a few quick photos as the clouds darkened the scene and the rain started.
