Magnolia Blossom

Today is the 14th of May, 2002. Today would have been my mother's 72nd birthday, had she not passed away last July, so I was feeling sort of down for most of the day.  When I got home and started playing with the dogs in the backyard, I noticed that the Magnolia tree, which has been in my backyard for the four years I have lived here had finally blossomed.  I had to grab the camera and share the joy.
