Watching Seattle come into bloom this spring was such a visual treat despite the record amount of rains Seattle received this year. I wish I could have spent more time outdoors this season but we’ve had only few spells of sunshine to be outside, and this sunny day was one of the few. It was the time for magnolia blooms – the most beautiful blooms among all. They may come in different forms and colors from small white blooms to giant white and pink and even light purple bringing the most fragrant sweet scent with them. We have some of them in the neighborhood and local park area. I thought that my stripped shirt with embroidered detailing would be a perfect match for the elegant white magnolia petals, so I couldn’t resist a couple of snaps next to the tree.
