Introduction

Each of the VVCAL 2018 Squares were dedicated to a tree by one of the members of my CypressTextiles Tree Huggers Facebook group.

The Magnolia Square was named by Ginette Pope, Gloria Hill, Diane G Montgomery, Patricia Ullrich, Lynn Mawson, Jasmine Ford, Glenda Ramage, and Joanne Priel. Thank you all.
