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.”
