“Everyday I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad.
I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.” ~Claude Monet

I feel particularly satisfied with this image today. This Clematis was goners. Trampled and crushed beneath debris and seemingly torn beyond repair. One single strand of tattered vine remained and maybe only a few inches in length. Last Spring, I cleared the debris away, put up a small shelter to keep stuff away from the base of this plant and gave some nutrients and water. Eventually the smallest green shoot came from the tattered vine. Slowly, shyly, the plant reached out and up a trellis I had put in place..the trellis seeming to be an overstated invitation for bigger and better things to come. The Clematis has reached upward and embraced the trellis and yesterday, finally, the first bloom emerged. Yes, basking in the sunshine. First time in years.
I have a tree, that I randomly call the Tulip Tree. It is just starting to bloom tulip like flowers that are approximately 4-6″ long (the petals). The flowers are upright. The tree itself is at most 10′ high and about 15′ wide. I am not certain (why I am asking you to help) but I do not believe it is the Liriodendrum tulipifera tree (by virtue of its height/age and foliage). But, I could be quite wrong. Appreciate the guidance here. Magnolia! Thanks to all of you that provided the details. I have a Magnolia Tree (‘magnolia-x-soulangeana-family-magnoliaceae’)

“Ladies, let me give you some advice. You can throw all your stupid fucking chick-lit, self-help, why-doesn’t-he-love-me books out, because this is all you need to know: Men will treat you the way you let them. There is no such thing as “deserving” respect; you get what you demand from people.. if you demand respect, he will either respect you or he won’t associate with you. It really is that simple.” Tucker Max
In my back yard, a spring emerges from the ground. It’s a gradual, gentle seeping forth. Seemingly, there are few influences to this water. But, I took a photo of the water right below the point of origin and apparently there are subtle changes……the rise and fall of the water level.
