Magnolia Blossoms

We walk past a magnolia tree on our walks
and it is in bloom now.
One of the oldest flowering plants,
the petals are much thicker than most flowers.

Magnolia är en helt underbar buske eller träd. Här har inte ens knopparna släppt sitt ludd.Vi är minst 3 veckor senare än förra året.
Ha en fin helg

Your walk with the Magnolia must be such a treat. I cannot grow them here but I have seen, touched and loved them and their scent once. It's memory remains with me still.

Like Dar, I cannot grow magnolias here either but I do love them for their exquisite beauty and fragrance. Rumour has it that the Star Magnolia will grow here and I tried for a few years but the poor thing had so much winter die back that it never had the opportunity to flower. You are very fortunate to have this beauty in your area!
