Photo of the Day May 4th

One of my very favourite signs of spring are flowering magnolia trees... I'm completely entranced by them, their beauty, their colour, and even their short blooming time. They're like a special gift from nature that arrives every spring and reminds you to stop and really enjoy the beauty around you, because it doesn't always last. On our way to preschool this morning I noticed that the magnolia tree living about a block from our house is starting to fade... the tell-tale hints of brown are beginning to appear on the petals and a few have already fallen. I took a moment to take a picture, capturing their fleeting beauty before its gone again...
