In the eyes of the Hartsville tree crew...the magnolia trees along Home Avenue are simply green things that stand in the way. While out running errands yesterday I spotted the crew hard at work...surrounded by piles of fresh cut magnolia branches, ready for the landfill.
Then I thought...hey, wait a second...I'll take those home with me.
So while the work crew stared...with concern for my sanity...I shoved green branches into the trunk of my car. Green and golden bronze leaves stand out so this time of year...against the dormant shrubs and leaf-bare trees.
Now in a vase, filling a bare corner of our dining room
And in the living room, filling the void left behind from last month's Christmas tree
Supposed to have record high temperatures the next few days. We will be out among the trees for sure. Have a great weekend.
