Finally Spring

It’s starting to look like ( a very wet ) Spring! We have had at least seven more inches of rain than is the norm for Ohio.

This magnolia is outside the office.

Speaking of magnolias, I tried to go to Secrest Arboretum last week, which usually has some amazing magnolias and azaleas. And there I discovered that it had been destroyed, last September, by a tornado. It was strange to discover everything gone, bulldozed, in preparation for new plantings.

But things are on the way to being restored. I wonder what it will look like in another decade, when things are re-established?
I both miss it, and look forward to the future.

And that is Spring.
