A sturdy Magnolia grandiflora

Magnolia grandiflora beside Avalon Hall

For more about this thriving old tree, and the roses and peonies and green lawns near it, see today's post, Flood Survivors , at my other blog, "Mary's Musings."

On my walk yesterday morning I was pleased to see that most of the trees and other plantings on the Lipscomb University campus, including this magnolia, had come through the unprecedentedly heavy rainstorms the first weekend of May, 2010, with no apparent damage.

Spring came on forever ...

This vine, tangled in the hedge across the street, is covered with these tiny racemes, each about 3 or 4 inches long, very delicate in the early morning sunlight. I haven't yet been able to find out the name of the vine.

I made this photo of the vine which is tangled in the hedge-row across the street, yesterday morning, when we got a few hours of sunshine in between many days of rain this spring. I haven't been able to find out the name of the vine.
