When we first bought our home almost 4 years ago one of the selling points for me (it was my this is the one moment) was the gorgeous Magnolia tree in the front yard. Every year it has the most amazing blooms. It had faithfully flowered every spring since we have lived here and I enjoy and treasure that site for the month where the petals sit so perfect outside of our window. Well, this year my bloom came and gone before it was able to be enjoyed. Our spring came a month early only to be dashed by a deep freeze for a week destroying my spring blooms. No doubt it is still a beautiful tree but I will be in mourning of my blooms until next spring.
