Before I leave ::sigh:: I forgot I wanted to post this pic of my neighbor's Magnolia tree. It is over 40 years old at least and when I took this pic (although you can't tell for the brightness of the sunlight) it was in full bloom from top to bottom.

Have any of you ever seen anything (knowing Magnolia blossoms and their fragrance) this magnificent?

Nicely proportioned tree! Yes, we have them around...I don't, they are very messy when those purrrty flowers fall, but they sure are gorgeous in bloom.

I love magnolias myself...would have to, just about, raised in the Deep South. There are places in Louisiana where it is illegal to cut down a magnolia tree without special dispensation from the local government. People feel VERY strongly about those trees!

I love it when trees bloom up here! Unfortunately I don't think I have ever seen a Magnolia tree before

Right now we are getting 'winter' in June. We have three gigantic Cottonwood trees accross the street from our parking lot at work and when the wind blows it fills the lot with 'fluff', really looks like it is snowing

It's beautiful!

They are very lucky to have that growing in their garden, it's supposed to be good Feng Shui if the angel is positioned correctly. A tree in bad places in a different thing - but forget the theories: that thing is simply beautiful!

What a breath-taking photo Moni. Thanks so much for sharing it. I just love magnolias. We have quite a few here in Nashville and I love when they are in bloom.

Lucky you!!! We have another one next door on the other side that no one takes care of. I water it now and then but it is still scrawny for being as old as it is. We just planted two in our backyard this spring. Babies from the looks of them LOL but they bloomed and filled our backyard with their lovely aroma for quite some time. For all that beauty, I don't mind the stuff that falls.

That's cool!

My grandmother in AZ lived in a senior's mobile home park some years back and they had cottonwoods everywhere...I remember the snow effect LOL! Is actually pretty cool!

You're Very Welcome!

Isn't it?
Well I sure hope that we placed ours in good places! We walked around the yard and found places that felt right...where the trees have plenty of room to grow and where their scents will be accessible to the deck we are going to on each side of the deck but far enough away to grow. I'd have to have a professional come see if it is all feng shui proper though because there are other trees back there as well. They look good though!

Lady Avalon,
You're welcome! I had never seen them until I moved here to Texas two years ago...I am in love LOL!


No I haven't checked yet but hopefully if the colony gets too large, some of the elves can move into the ones in my yard. You'll have to come visit.
