I promised to show y’all some of the sights from Sunday.
First, I’ll share the saucer magnolia buds and flowers. These beautiful trees, most stately and old, are blooming here in the southeast. Unlike the tulip magnolia the flowers are white and get huge, like a dinner plate. The entire tree does not bloom at once.
The tree in our yard suffered storm damage a couple of years ago, so it’s half a tree.
This flower hasn’t yet fully opened. It opened yesterday, but no one got a picture. I’ll have to show you what it looks like fully opened at another time.
Next let me share a picture of a chicken with you.
This chicken is commonly called a pond chicken or mud hen.
Snapping turtles are common.
I am celebrating the 30th anniversary of National Pet Week (May 1-7)
Hope y’all enjoyed sharing my day.
Y’all come back now.
