My World Tuesday

Photobucket

Here's the magnolia tree around the corner from my house. I took this photo a week ago and it was in full bloom as you can see. I showed this very same tree last week on "My World Tuesday" before it was in full bloom.

Magnolia trees come in white, pink and yellow. They bloom early in Spring, at least here in the Northeast.

With just a little research on the net I found out this one is called a

Leonard Messel magnolia and offers lovely pink blossoms with white inner petals. There is just nothing else like it. Flower color can vary from a lighter to a darker shade depending on the season's temperatures, but most years, it is an outstanding flamingo pink. You can count on plants to grow fifteen feet tall and ten feet wide.

That is so gorgeous! I had never seen a pink one! I posted a Tulip tree last evening and several people thought it was a magnolia. They're quite different, but you have to get up close to see it! Great post, as always!

I love Magnolia Blossoms! I did a post on my blog on January 8th... That's when the Magnolia trees were blossoming here in the Deep South!

Your tree is lovely, and the photo, too. Someone planted a magnolia tree in our yard years before we moved here, and every year it is beautiful for a day or two and then the frost gets to it and the blossoms turn brown and ugly. Ours is not in full bloom yet, but I'll have to take some photos in the brief time it, too, is lovely.
