Helen gave me a potted magnolia 'Little Gem' as a birthday present. On Sunday it had 3 buds. Two flowers appeared yesterday, but have nearly gone today. They do smell good though. I think I need to buy a large pot, find a suitable spot for its permanent residence and replant it. I do not have green fingers. I frequently kill plants, either through neglect or over indulgence in water. Hope this one lasts.

My friendship sewing group met at Jenny's new house today. Jenny does have green fingers and I am looking forward to seeing what eventuates in her presently minimal garden. There are some magnolias in a row against a fence - they are going to anyone who wants to dig them out. Glad I didn't need to offer!
