listening to new Ottmar Liebert cd, Dune. This is the one of the first blooms from my magnolia tree and the fragrance permeated my living room/dining room. I love this tree but it took a hit from the drought last summer and has taken on a fungus making alot of the leaves to fall off. I hope the tree recovers as the tree in one of the main reasons why I bought my house, which as of last month made for 4 years of ownership. Everyday when I pull my car into my driveway, I count my blessings and the tree is one of the first reminders.
