Steal Magnolias



I took this picture over a year ago just outside my office. Part of my job was to make sure the grounds/facilities were kept in good shape. I did well with that in some ways, not so hot in others.

Contracting quality carpet cleaning for the entire building - Thousands.
Hiring window cleaning service for the entire building - Many many dollars.
Paying a little extra to have magnolias added to the landscape - Priceless.
Because, as it turns out - who loves Magnolias?
No, not ME, silly! The president of the company!

SCORE!

Hey, a little magnolia scented brown nosing is OK, right?

  • Yeah...SCORE!!!
    Especially when you get to enjoy them too.
    It's strange when you look back at past performances, isn't it?
    Glad you had the blessing of capturing it in pictures.

  • Steve - there's one right outside the shipping door, and there's also one in the front, (South Annex) in the corner by the receptionist window and the copier window. I can't remember what year we contracted the new landscape job there - but it was several years ago.
    They only bloom for a short time in the spring, so if you don't pay close attention, it's easy to miss it.
    (plus you don't use those doors very often, you wouldn't have observed them)
