Magnificent Magnolia

My magnolia tree is blooming.  It only lasts for about 7 days, or 4 hours if you listen to my husband.  I wouldn’t care if it only bloomed for 4 minutes – it is stunning to look at and delicious to smell.

These pictures are from the tree in my yard.  Enjoy.

    Nothing is blooming here. Nothing. 😦

  2. Techy, how beautiful! That is what happened to my poor tulips…all of a week or so in bloom then kaput…oh well a short bloom is better than no bloom! 🙂

    Very pretty! What variety of Magnolia is it? I’ve got a Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) in my front yard but it’s flowers are no where near that lovely.

    • Hi dragonfae. My tree is a saucer magnolia. The blossoms look like tulips before they open and are stunning to look at. I have neighbours whose trees look like ‘specimens’…you know, perfectly shaped, blossoms covering every branch? Mine needs a bit of help but still makes me smile.

      I looked up your tree type. It looks just as lovely with white blossoms that almost look like wedding bouquets. I bet if you look up close at one blossom, it is as gorgeous as mine!
