I had been asked not to use any pins, so on January 28th I dragged myself to Parsonage Gardens to tie my Missing poster to the magnolia tree. It had taken me all day to get there from ten minutes’ walk away (sometimes the shortest journeys take the longest time), and dusk had fallen.
I took some pictures on my phone of the buds against the darkening sky,
… and a final cartoon shot, before leaving.
Two days later I returned, to see what it looked like in daylight.
