When we moved to this property 32 years ago, my late husband brought a lot of plants and trees with us from Wilmington, NC. The magnolia tree was one of them. I always called her Maggie, and she grew to be a very tall tree (taller than the powerlines). The one bad thing is, she never bloomed. Never. The year my husband died (1999), I noticed a couple of blooms at the top of the tree. Every year since, there has been more and more. This year Maggie has done a magnificent job!! Blooms everywhere, dozens of them, and not all at once. Two years ago, I had a maple tree nearby cut down, and Maggie spread out in all directions. You could almost see it happening. Way to go Maggie, long may you bloom!!

Hot weather and whining!

I'm still here. Slowly getting back to "normal". Still on the inactive list though. No patience, no progress, not much accomplished. Sheesh! Hot weather arrived yesterday, at the drugstore in town it said 93 degrees F, at the phone company it said 100. It felt more like 100. One day at a time, trust God, things are bound to get better.
