Spring Things - The Magnolia

The magnolias are at the end of their blooming season in upstate New York.

A week ago they were just starting.

By the weekend, they were in full bloom. Their blooms are beloved as they are so big.  Many also enjoy their fragrance.

But they are dropping now, carpeting the ground.  My guest photographer has captured the essence of a magnolia carpet.

Here today, gone tomorrow.

Look quickly and appreciate, or you will miss the show.

  1. On neighbor's magnolia was stunning while the house next to him has a magnolia that looks basically dead. I am waiting for my crabapples to bloom.

  2. I remember the magnolia bush (it never was quite a tree) on our front lawn and its "flash in a pan" colors.

  4. Awesome Magnolia carpet!
    The mention of Magnolia made me recollect the poem, Mr Magnolia by Quentin Blake. Its one very light, hilarious poem. However I can see that Mr Magnolia has nothing in common with the Magnolia flowers.

  9. Gorgeous pics Alana. I have never seen this flower; what we call magnolia here is a creamy white flower with very large petals. It smells divine!

  11. Beautiful! I'm trying to think whether I've seen magnolias in India. Do they have a strong scent?
