Nature's Calendar - Magnolia


April fools day but this magnificent tree in my neighbour's garden is no fool the flower heads are a good 6" tall and such a delicate shade of pink

We saw some of these last week when we met up with Z&C - they were amazing! But our favourites were the smaller ones as their furry "skins" were SO soft!

There's a lovely magnolia tree round the corner from us - we walk past it on our way to church each week, and I love to see it start to blossom :-)

I have always wanted a magnolia tree, I love them so much. I love how they grow in the most inhospitable places and still manage to look magnificent. x

I am so envious of your flowers! we still have three or four feet of snow on the ground here - won't be in the garden for at least another month.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
