Magnolia tree...oh so pretty...





This morning as I was raking and cursing at my Magnolia tree...I looked up for a minute instead of down at all the leaves on the lawn and felt sort of bad for being mad at this tree...



It gives such nice shade to our front yard and such pretty blooms this time of year as well...

It was no taller than me when we first moved in our house and now it stands about 40 feet tall. It really is a great tree...even though it sheds leaves like no body's business...
I am still having issues with Blogger and I really am at my witt's end...for some reason the tool bar at the top of the page doesn't work anymore...except to load photos...and sometimes I have to fight with that as well!! I wish I knew what to do...but I'm an old fool who has no idea of how to fix this!! Any suggestions would certainly be appreciated...because I'm ready to scrap this whole thing and just go back to my before Blogging life...things were simpler then!But then I would miss all the wonderful people I have met here...oh well....I'm going back to the garden...at least I know what to do out there!!
Enjoy your weekend, my friends!!
