Although the weather has been gray and cloudy
for a few days, today is sunny.
The added light makes all the flowers in the neighborhood extra lovely.
From my home office window, I'm fortunate enough to see
a lush yellow Lady Banks Rose, like this one:

and a pink dogwood, and one of my most favorite trees:
a sweet bay magnolia about to produce its white, lemony sweet blossoms.
