There are two magnolia trees in my front yard that are in full bloom only for a couple of days before the flowers rapidly start flying off the tree. (and when I mean a few days it really is only a few days!) My mom really wanted me to take pictures of the trees before the flowers started to disappear. Unfortunately, I didn't get out there soon enough so I had to get creative; most of the petals from the flowers had already fallen. I promise I'll get the flowers in full bloom next year mom!!!
