When we crave a little more terra than firma, we head to historic Tower Grove Park - this country's most beautiful wooded Victorian walking park, just a block away from our city house
Just like most places this winter, the weather has been unseasonably mild in St. Louis. My magnolia tree in our back yard is in full bud, but some of the magnolia trees in Tower Grove Park are even farther along - way too early.
|Though this was taken early last spring, this same tree is already showing its colors - way too early for this |
part of the country. It will surely get nipped and deprive us of a full season of beautiful big flowers.
