Magnificent Magnolia

 This Saucer Magnolia belongs to my sister.
 Lucky for me, I only live 5 minutes away.
 She surprised her daughter with a Saucer Magnolia this past weekend.
 Now I have two lovely Magnolia's tree's in my family.
I can visit with my sister, have a cup of tea, take photo's. 
  Visit my niece have another cup of tea, take more photo's...
I'm a lucky lady!

Wonderful pictures, just gorgeous. Growing up our neighbors had one,it would bloom then a cold front would come in and blow the blooms off! it seemed that way every year.

Those are beautiful. The magnolias here bloom a bit later and are all white.

I have this magnolia Shirley and its pink blooms are our first sign of Spring each year in March but not this year. It finally put out a flush of blooms in mid April but no where near like it usually does. I was a little worried. Last Fall we dug up some of the slips growing underneath it and transplanted them and they lived and are are doing well this Spring. That was a nice surprise. Hope you are having some warm days. I am going to try and paint our front porch this weekend between rain drops. :) xo
