    Default Magnolia in bloom...

    We saved this Magnolia tree when it was a mere nine inches tall...with only one leaf. That was sixteen years ago...now it is almost fifty feet tall, with many blooms...Enjoy...Betty

    Very pretty Betty. There is one in the woods behind my house. Close enough that I can smell the fragrance.
    People never realize how big a tree magnolias can get it. I see them plant them up close to their houses.

    Thanks for all the nice compliments, everyone. As you can see,we have much more than orchids to take good care of... it's fun, and we enjoy all of our plants/trees. Andy & Betty

    The flowers look familiar, but it's from a different tree found here. I agreed, Betty, i see all plant as interesting in their own form, leaves, flowers and growing methods.
