Tollys' Magic

Martin brought a rather unpromising bunch of twigs from the market last week.......the bunch was large...we saw the twigs before the man.
Sharp garden implements were needed to cut them into a suitable size for the largest container in the shop.
They have caused some excitement here.
The ugly ducklings have  become swans, large waxy blooms of Magnolia, pure bliss.

(Tollys' magic comes from the book Children of Green Knowle by Lucy Boston..his grandmother brings bare twigs in at winter to force them into bloom....clever lady!!)
