Glory be to God for dappled things-
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chesnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced -fold, fallow and plough:
From “Pied Beauty” by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Also known as the Tulip Tree, the very large rose-pink flowers are a knockout display of color and fragrance
Interesting fact: the Magnolia Tree has to be at least 20 years old to flower!
The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size. ~Gertrude S. Wister
Green is exploding everywhere! From the green of field grass bending before a warm breeze to the young leaves feathering the trees
My Comfrey plant. Comfrey leaves and roots have been used for medicinal purposes since Roman times and is known for it’s healing properties in treating wounds.
