Friday transformation

From chilly, almost raining morning to gorgeous evening sun and cool breezes; we could have used the precipitation, but it never appeared, was bound up in the gray flannel skies. Just one of those end of the week days, with our nonegenarian zonked out late in the morning but raring to go out for her hairdoing. We admire the giant magnolias blooming next to the Taco Time near the salon; the dinner plate-sized blossoms are astounding. When we tip one down to see if it has a fragrance, baffled honeybees are seen crawling around in the flower's saucer, trying to find a source of pollen. The kids have lucked out in their choice of days to go up to Index for climbing, the cool air must be a delight on those dark granite expanses.
