Thursday Tree Love: Blooming Magnolia


I’ve been waiting for my neighbor’s magnolia tree to bloom, and here she is…

…standing close to towering pines.


Magnloia with open arms

Her arms reach out as if to embrace.

This arm reaches for the sun.



The flowers have a gentle lemony scent. The tree herself is strong and sturdy.

Years ago, I visited a friend who had done some pruning on her magnolia tree. When the green leaves were burned, they made a loud crackling sound.

The magnolia is an evergreen tree, but some leaves do brown and fall to the ground naturally and hold rain water for little ones to drink.

  8. Lovely blooms and the tree too. The green is dark and that’s a bit unique. I loved that little tidbit on the leaves holding water. I have seen many dried leaves curl up. Maybe a way of nature to support the life around. Thanks for joining, JoAnna. I hope to see you tomorrow.

    • Thank you, Parul. I forgot to mention that magnolias are evergreens. They drop some leaves, but stay dark green all year. I’ll see you tomorrow!
