Spring Magnolia


Magnolia building

While picking up my daughters friend, I came across this Magnolia tree on the campus of Phillips Exeter Academy. It’s quite old and was a rather unexpected find. Had I not been picking up the friend in a different location than normal I doubt I would have ever noticed it.

We’ve had a few warm days but it’s definitely still March. Yesterday we had temps in the low 30’s. Today, low 40’s. I wouldn’t expect the Magnolia’s to be blooming already. Sometimes plants and trees like to surprise us. Even they get excited about Spring.

It's been so chilly these past few days, and yet, things are continuing to grow! I guess it's just one of the many miracles of Mother Nature :)
