The Magnolia trees in our area all lost their beautiful buds during the nor'easter last week. We won't be seeing any of the beautiful tulip-like blooms nor smell the fragrance they give off this year.
Even though this stamp I used on my card is called Magnolia Rhapsody by Penny Black, it doesn't come very close to replacing the magnificent blooms of a real Magnolia tree. Sorry this post is on the sad side, but I look out at our Magnolia tree every day and see the wilted brown buds that were just a day away from blooming when the weather turned cold. On the other hand, we do have our Forsythia bush that is full of yellow blooms.
