I remember the wonder smell of the magnolia trees in Pasadena, CA. Miss them a tad. The blossoms you have look amazing.

They are gorgeous! I wish I had a magnolia tree in my yard, but they are everywhere here so at least I still get to enjoy them.

How gorgeous!

Very pretty! We had a Southern magnolia like this in the backyard of our first home. As beautiful - and huge - as it was we felt like we needed hardhats when all the parts and pieces of the blossoms started drying up and showering down.

Gorgeous captures!!


Re your query on my post - Yes the migrants still flood Mumbai but now there is no organised housing for them hence they slum it.

I saw a magnolia tree at the nursery Jacob, is your tree very big? I love the blooms, very luxurious.

So beautiful, Lowell!

I find it interesting that one of the first reactions upon seeing a magnolia, or a photo of it, is to immediately recall the wonderful fragrance. My question to you is: what is the strongest sense . . . sight or smell?

That is gorgeous and I bet it smells nice too. I do love the big magnolia blooms and we don't see them very often here in the desert.

Yep -- we bought our home in Oregon mostly because of the beautiful grandiflora magnolia in the front yard (well, it was the first thing about it I fell in love with -- there were other good points). (Surprisingly, magnolias do very well in Oregon -- their health must have more to do with the dampness than the weather, since it is so much cooler there).
