What’s Blooming: Sweetbay (Magnolia virginiana).
I wish I could convey how wonderful this flower smells. My sweetbay is a large shrub growing in the understory, loaded this year with hundreds of buds. Only three have blossomed so far, but even so, those few flowers completely infuse the air with the blended scents of lemon and vanilla. It smells the way a lemon cupcake with buttercream icing tastes. Delectable.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
