Mini Pink Magnolia

Nothing is anticipated more around here in the Spring than the appearance of the magnolia flowers. The scent that pervades the air is intoxicating (and it is so poorly imitated in scented products) The exotic petals are such an unlikely sight, too, sitting as they do on bare branches so early in the Spring. There is a reason, apart from the obvious that I call this Mini Pink Magnolia. It is a small magnolia flower, much smaller than those on our tree and the magnolia itself is not much bigger than a large bush. It’s not really mini, more ‘small’ but that didn’t work for me as a title. However I have to differentiate between flowers as I will share similar ones and we need to be specific (to keep the links working). So at last the first ones are out in the village, and here is my first share. Our own are soon to be fully out and if we can avoid a heavy wind and rain – like yesterday and today – we will have a wonderful week or so with this delight right outside my kitchen door. Although it seems hard to find joy at this time, a simple flower can do it for me. And I hope it does the same for you, my friends. A Flower a Day #231

  1. A perfect PFD. I was wondering when the magnificent Magnolia would make an appearance. I need wait no longer. This may be a ‘mini’ magnolia but its impact is substantial – so soft and warm, like an invitation to tea with freshly-baked biscuits. Irresistible and lovely. Thank you, Ellie. I look forward to the next instalment.

  2. They are beautiful Ellie. Such a treat at this time of year to see those trees blossom. I’m glad with the weather the way it is the last couple of days that yours is not really out yet. This type of weather is hard on them. Hope you have a good day thanks again for sharing

    1. Thanks Linda, yes, it’s great they haven’t been too affected by the ring and rain as they are still budding. Have a good evening.
