Darker Pink Magnolia Tree in Bloom

This is another magnolia tree that we admired when visiting the Dunedin Botanic Garden on Sat 26 Aug. The blossom is a much darker pink.than that pictured in my previous post and there are a lot of big fat furry buds that create an interesting spotty effect when looking up from below. The buds are big and look rather like little birds!
