Carpe Diem #963 Magnolia

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I had a busy day today so I don't have enough time to create a big episode, so I will give you all a short episode for your inspiration. That means ... I will give you only the haiku example by Jane Reichhold (extracted from her online saijiki) which she gives at her website.
Today our prompt is Magnolia, that beautiful bush that blooms earlier in spring (or late in winter). Jane gives just one example:

As I stated in the Theme Week posts I have a few favorites to write haiku about, Magnolia is one of them. So I have a few "magnolia"-haiku for you too.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until April 30th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, a new Tokubetsudesu episode, later on. Have fun!
