For a change not the ubiquitous paint shade, but its alleged inspiration. We are blessed with a beautiful magnolia tree in our front garden, which gives our entire street much joy every spring. This year looks like being a particularly good year as the tree has had time to recover from last year's prune. I love the way the intensity of the pink gives way to a delicate flush of colour up the petals.
A glimpse of my dad's prized spring planting. People stop in the street to look at our tree and the flowers, I feel so pleased for him.
Goodness spring is wonderful, those fleeting realisations and familiar reassurances that winter will not last forever.
