When I stand on our top balcony and look to my right I seem to have a sea of them. All gorgeous and frothy and pink.
And I wonder if they were all planted at the same time. The size of the trees is quite remarkable.
I am planning my plod to the shops for groceries past as many as I can.
It’s such a shame that magnolias are such dull old trees one the flowers are over.
Mind you I don’t think there was a bouquet of flowers to our house in Sydney that didn’t contain magnolia foliage: that lovely contrast between the brown underside and the leathery top of the leaf.
We don’t have any magnolias on our farm. Time to do some research and see if I can plant them?
