Driving home from dinner in Raleigh last night, I jokingly told my husband that
I ought to go ahead and pick a magnolia now so I can get an early start painting in the
morning. Next thing I knew he pulled over beside a huge magnolia tree and asked me if I needed the flashlight. I should know by now not to say anything like that unless I mean it.
I did get a large flower that was fully opened up and had fun painting it first thing this morning!
