Magnolia Blossom - Whitecroft148 viewsI love Magnolias. Great, huge, pure white flowers. It's a shame that they seem to fall apart so quickly, so it's hard to bring them in the house for a big floral display. (Unless there's some secret that only Southern belles learn, while drinking juleps.) This magnolia bud is in our large tree, Whitecroft, on a hot summer afternoon.

The Old and The New100 viewsThe magnolia tree in our front garden -- a new blossom, and an old. The magnolia is an ancient genus that evolved before bees appeared. The flowers are designed to be pollinated by beetles. This is a Southern Magnolia, or Magnolia grandiflora.

Magnolia Grandiflora -- Southern Magnolia98 viewsThe large petals on the flower fall away, and the "fruit" is left inside. Here's a young flower, and the "fruit" from a old flower. The huge flowers smell wonderful, but fall to bits if we try to cut them and put them inside in a vase.
