The magic of magnolia

20130507-211443.jpg

We have a beautiful magnolia in our garden, which was here when we moved into the house but it was pot bound on the patio. We planted it out and since then it has really come on strong. But this magnolia blooms for only a short period of time – depending on the weather it may only last for a day! So when I spotted that a few flowers were blooming I had to dash out (in my pyjamas!) to get a photo. Although the weather has been glorious for the past few days it will be on the turn from tomorrow, so I reckon it was worth it even though it was starting to get dark!

  1. What a tease, ONE day is hardly far when you are that grande and beautiful. We traveled to Virginia the spring of 2000 and so enjoyed them all around town. Especially around the Jefferson University, the just smelt heavenly. I love that you’ll jet out there in your jammies to capture the splendour.

    • I bet that was an amazing experience – I imagine it looked so beautiful too! The flowers are still there today but it was worth the pyjama dash because the rain did get them a bit today!
