Getting ready to leave on a girls’ getaway. Oh, those words have a sweet sound in my ears. The word getaway is like medicine right now and the phrase girls’ trip always puts a thrill in my heart. I can put the frustration of things not happening fast enough out of my mind and get a fresh perspective moving forward.
It’s a road trip and we’re headed south for three days in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Blooms should be bursting forth even more there than they are here and when I return I anticipate the leafing of the trees to be in full swing. Love this time of year, don’t you? I’m taking my “good” camera and promise to share photos of my trip in a future blog post.
But for now there’s this.
I’m happy I get to enjoy the blooms of this three year old magnolia before we move.
I find it interesting that the younger the bud, the more saturated the color and as it grows and unfolds it becomes a paler shade.
Next week I’m going to share what I’ve been working on for the past few months. I’m really excited about it and can’t wait to tell you.
