Rain rain and more rain

Colorado has been in a cycle of rain every afternoon - after being in a drought for several years it's nice to be wet again - but enough is enough especially with the hail that has accompanied the rain a couple of times! My flowers and tree leaves are in shreds. There was a rainbow yesterday and the weekend is supposed to be nicer.
The above is a saucer magnolia that is a lovely shade of purple when in bud. I really liked the bark which sort of looks like stars. Picture was taken earlier at the Gulley Greenhouses in Fort Collins.
