various and assorted miscellany
Those are awsome! I´m pretty sure I have never seen one in real life.
they are all over the place around here. we had a few in a yard where we lived once. they took up a lot of the yard!
A stunning tree. My favorite. Your pictures are great. You are right: the fragrance transports you to another realm. I clip them to bring inside and place in a bowl of water but they last only a day so better to enjoy the smell outside.
oh, yes! i used to cut them one at a time and take them to mother. she would float them in a bowl and they would scent her whole house. they are one of my favorites, too.
Walking among the magnolias must be wonderful.Darla
it is! and they are perfect climbing trees! they don't like for folks to climb these, tho i'm not sure why.
