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.

Her arms reach out as if to embrace.

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.
