Faded Magnolia and other photos of Monday...

My beautiful creamy white Magnoila blossom has faded to brown... I still love the color... parchment brown...

I thought I'd take some vegetable garden photos this afternoon... I got home early, but...this is the best I could do... a garden photo from way up on the back porch... I zoomed in as much as possible... Mother Nature would have no close-up garden photos today..

She sent us a wonderful inch of rain... Thank you Mother Nature... I went to the front porch where my basket of posies, bought at the church celebration in March, are enjoying the rain mist they're receiving...and the French Lavender I bought Sunday still waits to be planted in the garden... it rained on Saturday and Sunday too...My spoon chimes were doing their duty and blowing in the wind... and rain...So I pulled up a chair... to smell and hear the sound of the rain...
Thankful for the blessing of rain...

down here in French Lique...

I heard that touching the pedals turns them brown.

It was delight!!! Just wish I have more rain barrels.I look forward to the wild flowers that will spring up from this refreshment.
Jealous, I think that is what it is. Texas has it all, desert, mountain, our own 'grand canyon,' sea port, and don't forget about Blue Bell ice cream. Someone has to live here and I thank the Lord my ancestors parked their wagon here.
Stay safe on the road and happy hunting at Twice Blessed.

Hey Dixie, You are right, they needed something or someone.....love your statements about Texas. Are you still headed to Canton in June?

I sure hope we get some of that rain over here, it is already getting hot and dry. Spring doesn't linger long in the deep south.

Love those photos, Dixie! I agree, magnolia blossoms are still beautiful even as they die down.

Sorry for the late visit!
