The Essence of Spring

Drawing done by SophiaMaria

Magnolia flowers bloom early in the springtime and only last for about two weeks. I think they are the perfect representation of early spring.

When I was growing up on my family’s farm, we had a magnolia tree that bloomed every early spring. There are different types of magnolia trees, and the one we had was called a Water Lily Magnolia. I remember the scent of the flowers all too well. It’s a beautiful sweet scent that’s so pure. When they would start blooming, I knew that spring would be right around the corner. It’s crazy how much hope I put into some flowers, but they will forever live on in my memory as the essence of spring.
