Magnolia Pods

Rain. Rain. Rain.
Three days worth, so I've been spending a lot of time working on projects indoors
and alternately looking out the windows, hoping to see some sun.
Yesterday I noticed the sweet bay magnolia tree near my front door
held a single creamy white flower.
Today I noticed it had turned brown,
 but the seed pods from previous flowers are now rose pink to red.

Soon the robins and mockingbirds will arrive 
to feast on the magnolia's red seed berries.
Let's hope they'll be eating them in the sunshine.
