It occurred to me this week. When the star magnolia (Magnolia stellata) blooms, it is generally time to mow the lawn.
Now that I know this, I won’t have to actually look at the lawn to decide when I should mow it for the first time. I’ll just mow whenever the magnolia blooms.
I will look at the lawn to decide if it is ready for the first mowing. But I won’t look until the magnolia is blooming.
You can’t stop me.
In other news, I’m posting another garden fairy selfie.
You can’t stop me!

Oh, look, a little garden sprite photo bombed it.
I don’t write much about garden sprites. I really don’t know much about them. They are a bit shy and tend not to be out when people are out, but I suppose this photo op was just too tempting.
You can’t stop a garden sprite if they decide to jump into a garden fairy selfie.
You just can’t.
