The best magnolia tree

I wish I had a better photo than this, but I decided to spend my moments marvelling at this glorious tree in real time. A gorgeous magnolia , tall, tall, tall, with pink petals drifting to the ground on the middle of a warm Saturday afternoon in March. 

Have you ever had a spiritual experience looking at a plant? I have now. Staring up at the massive blooms and the blue sky was incredible. I could have stayed there for a lifetime. Maybe more. Such beauty. Such peacefulness. Yet so ethereal: with all those petals falling, my guess is that it will turn into a regular old tree again in a week, maybe two. 

It’s hard not to feel one with the world when you stand underneath this tree. It’s in Beacon Hill Park, in Victoria, near the kid’s water park. Go and see what I mean.
