Magnolia Tales: Growing up Southern

Growing up is not easy, but it sure is a lot easier than growing old. At its best, childhood should revolve around a place and time known as “home,” which we remember for the rest of our lives. Some of those homes were shaded by bamboo groves or maybe giant chestnut trees. It just so happened that the mighty magnolia populated my Southern childhood neighborhood, so that has always colored my memory of those days.
