beauty pageant

I can't stop! I'm completely obsessed! These are the precious few days of spring when the magnolia trees are in bloom — and I cannot get enough. I confess that a few things might be slipping through the cracks:

Are we having any dinner? You had lunch, didn't you?

Weren't we scheduled to meet today at 10:00? Gosh, I'm sorry. Let's push it to next week. You'll be fine. Really.

Woman, where's my Super Suit?* Oh, just wear what you wore yesterday. Trust me. No one'll be the wiser.

People, don't you know the MAGNOLIA TREES ARE IN BLOOM!

I'm working on a photo pageant — a veritable Project Runway of Full Frontal Flora — featuring (you guessed it) the magnificent magnolias of NYC. Stay tuned. They are spectacular.

gorgeous pics especially the last one. i remember when i used to get so delirious about these heralds of proper spring when i lived in ny and then i used to get so annoyed, because immediately a day like today would come and extreme temps would.....well i don't want to be a buzzkill. do please revel in them while you can. you and they deserve it.

Ooh, I love the giddy joy in this post.

I'm going to run out today (sick, coughing, laryngitis and all) and scope out the blooms in my neighborhood.

Keep that bloom love going. I feel it, all the way over on the other side of the country. And it is glorious.
