February - 007 snapshot

February:A time of birth and renewal. Beginnings. This is the month of my birth, and signifies the promise of spring yet to come. Pictured here are the buds of our magnolia trees, forming during the harsh cold reality of a February day. The sky is deep blue, yet the air is chilly. The rains pound down most days, and yet these blossoms are growing. Quietly, steadfast. They thrive beneath their protective outer coats.. and await the warming days of spring.

the other day I noticed all the buds on the trees - hard to believe it will be months before we see what they hold!

How incredibly beautiful. The hope of spring! My birthday is tomorrow, and I'm bummed that we got the big snowstorm last night, so your post definitely cheered me up!

Sorry I missed your birthday! Ed asks why you didn't send him a birthday gift? :-) (Some years he's been known to practice the hobbit gift-giving.)

Wonderful post!

Did your daughter play with your hair while spending time together? I'm sure you two had a blast.

Lovely Teyani..I absolutely love Magnolias; my parents always had a tree when I was a kid. I have tried to grow them on our farm but we don't really have a sheltered enough location. I am now waiting on a special northern type which I planted two years ago to grow...faster! Enjoy the tree and the promise of what it brings!
