happiness is…

Standing under a tree you planted in your garden and looking up at the blue blue sky.
(it's a 5 yr old (to me) Magnolia macrophylla if you're wondering)


  1. I haven't seen that one around here too much... the leaves look really tropical on account of their size!

  2. I had a feeling it was your Magnolia. I'm lusting after that tree as I drool over your photos! Love that blue sky behind it.

    I was just looking up through the largest of my Japanese maples. The fact that I planted this tree as a baby ten years ago is just awe inspiring.

  3. Totally! Trees are like our commitment to our gardens and the planet...knowing they will (hopefully) be here even after we are gone!

  4. ricki, aren't blue skies the best? Can you ever get tired of them?

    RFG, tropical, yes! My very first ever trip to Cistus Nursery I saw it and had to have it. Luckily it's sailed right though just fine. Now if it would just put on a few more blooms!

    Grace, why don't you get one!?

    Scott, well put. Whomever lives in this house in the future had better appreciate that tree.
