Heat Waves and Reasons to Love the South Anyway

As hot as it gets, and of course, no one can complain this summer with any originality, there is something  always cooling about the magnolia in bloom. Even on a sunny street, the scent of this large and stately blossom drops the temperatures for the length of a inhalation.

Of course you are right about our not being able to complain. I wonder if it makes it worse for us...or if we could learn the lesson that whining doesn't really help anyway. Someone should research this in the name of preserving Southern culture.

Love that Lily Girl.
