Weekly Photo Challenge: Off-season

As if it could read the Weekly Photo Challenge for this week — Off-season — my White Star White Magnolia produced a surprise bloom on fully green branches in the 90-degree summer weather yesterday.  It didn’t stay pretty long, however.  This unseasonable delicate blossom crisped up quickly in the unrelenting heat.

It's June 15, 2015, in Knoxville, and a White Star White Magnolia blossom magically appeared off-season!

So, for contrast, here’s a photo from my previous post dated March 3, 2015, showing an on-season, gorgeous White Star White Magnolia!
