Magnolia opened

w open magnolia
Since I took the photo of the buds I’ve been hoping to capture the same flowers in full bloom against a blue sky. Yesterday was my best opportunity, though the sky wasn’t completely clear. It was later in the day, so the light isn’t as good as the first shot. Still, I’m pleased to have completed the little assignment I set myself. It’s been raining all night, so the blooms will be spoilt now. It seems to be a law of nature that it pours with rain as soon as the magnolias are in full bloom.

      Thanks 🙂 I love magnolias, but if I were to plant a tree in my own garden I’d go for one that produces fruit or nuts rather than a pure ornamental. I’m glad other people don’t make that decision though!
