Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Magnolias in the rain

The magnolias are opening in all their lush, feminine, glory. Right now they remind me a bit of aging Playboy Bunnies.

Still magnificent, but showing some signs of living too wild and partying too heartily. The frost has nipped the tips of some petals. The hailstorm, though thrilling, has left them a bit battered, and the translucence of their glory is muted in the cold grey light of a rainy dawn.

But still, you wouldn't kick them out of bed.

    I've always thought magnolias were a bit like the local floozies. Now I know.

    I actually like organizing and decluttering. Sick, I know. It's a good thing though because with the water damage crew here moving everything around, I'm going to get to re-organize.

    Sweet, blowsy blooms,
    Put away your rouge
    Turn your faces to the sun
    Smile in translucence
    Dream of crisper perky days.

    Ah... flower porn... bring it on.
