Beaker

Only took 20 years!



Shock of shocks!  My Bull Bay Magnolia flowered 2 days ago! 
 
I planted it close to 20 years ago... and this is its first flower ever!
It smells DIVINE, and you can smell it from metres away!  And that was on a cool day.  Can't wait to see what it's like with more flowers (there appear to be more on the way) on a warm day!

I'm choosing to see it as an augur of good things to come; that our struggle for the last 20yrs is finally going to bloom into something pretty special.  ^-^

Here's to a good 2009!
