Anniversary Tree

Last year, for our first anniversary, my mom got us a magnolia tree and made arrangements to have it planted in our yard. We picked a spot in the front yard and waited that whole week for it to arrive. I came home from work later in the week to discover it already planted and perfect. It was a lot bigger than I had thought, which meant I probably couldn't kill it! By that time it was way past it's bloom period, and so I really had no idea what it was going to look like.

This afternoon I came home to see pops of magenta peeking out from under the fuzzy buds. I immediately had to document it, and plan on making a series out of it... stay tuned!

Here is our anniversary tree on April 23, 2009 — Jack Frost, steer clear!
