Thursday Tree Love: Blooming Magnolias


Magnolia Flowers in the Parking Lot

It seems everywhere I look magnolias are blooming – big sprawling trees and tall thin ones like the one in the parking lot at the grocery store. I had not realized this parking lot contained a magnolia tree until today. You may have read this before here and might again: All parking lots should have tree islands like this one that I’m guessing was paved about 30 years ago. Magnolias are evergreens. They drop the old brown leaves as new leaves and flowers come in. The flowers have a soft, lemony scent.

More magnolia photos:

The last photo was taken by my daughter a couple of weeks ago at her apartment complex where the magnolia flowers were “as big as your head.”


Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Parul Thakur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. For more tree love, visit Parul at:

  3. My childhood home had three magnolia trees that were dramatic and gorgeous. Every time I see or smell one, it reminds me of home. We don’t have them where I live now, and I miss them. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Beautiful! A flower ‘as big as your head’ seems really really huge!! Are Magnolias very fragrant flowers? Great captures JoAnna!

  5. I loved the blooms and as big as a head? That’s huge. I love the white of magnolia and so glad you are witnessing the beauty. πŸ™‚ Thanks for joining, JoAnna.

  6. I love the smell of these flowers
