.... our magnolia stellata is always the first of our larger trees to produce flowers each year. It's actually quite late this time, no doubt held back by the rather chilly February we had.
I shall miss it in real life this year, since by the time I return the flowers will be over.
Feeling pretty tired, I opted for a relatively quiet day off, with a brief wander around in Chinatown then a walk back to the hotel and some time with my book - Le Livre du Roi - by Indridason.
There was a big storm during the afternoon, with torrential rain, so I was glad not to have been out and about at that time !
Work again in the morning, with an early start as I've quite a journey to reach the venue, then even earlier for the next few days, so it looks like being another demanding week ....
Have you sampled any of the live recordings of choral music featured on the Moments Musicaux page of the website?
Or there's a Christmas Carol selection available here.
