Just as I was thinking of walking the dog earlier today, the sky turned grey and ominous and we had a brief thunderstorm. Hard to imagine that an hour or so later, the sun came down and all was beautiful and sunny. The grass was still to wet to cut, but I took the opportunity to do a bit of dead heading in the garden and I came across this solitary magnolia petal on the lawn.
It still looked beautiful even in its early signs of decay.
