When we moved here, this magnolia was about 7 feet tall. It is now …. this big! Our friend Ursula in Germany wanted to see a photograph of it, so here it is, for you! Also, our American friend Lynn posted pictures of his magnolia tree, day by day, until it became covered with snow! So perhaps he would like to see it too – we have no snow here, I’m glad to say. I think this was the best day for it, as most of the flowers were out and hardly any had lost their petals. They last such a short time, it’s sad really. I like the fact that the forsythia is so rich and yellow behind it with all of this colour and scent, flanking the drive. It’s such a welcoming sight.
