A Carpet of Petals
Each spring I look forward to the time when the big Magnolia Tree in front of school begins to bloom. It is right beneath my classroom windows, and it is a beautiful sight after a long winter. This year I almost missed the entire experience. Because of the unusually warm weather, it began blooming while we were on spring break, and by the time we came back on Monday, the petals were already carpeting the lawn.
