There is a beautiful Magnolia tree that sits at the entrance to our development. I've been driving by every day for weeks, thinking that I should get my camera and take some pics of the blossoms. Finally, yesterday, I did just that. Then, I combined a couple of them and came up with this painting. This time of year, I think most of us love to do Magnolias!
I finally have an afternoon with nowhere to go, so thought I would sit by the pool -- but no, it's decided to thunder and rain! Our rainy season has begun. Poor Barney, he barks and carries on the whole time the thunder happens. We gave him some pills yesterday that are supposed to chill him out - and he was like a drunken sailor all afternoon! I think we'll have to rethink the dosage!
