Standout Magnolia

The magnolia stopped me in my tracks as Nigel and I walked into Gore from our home, via Bannerman Park. I nearly missed it, just caught a glimpse of something really bright and almost fluorescent up a side path. I yelled at Nigel to come back and we went via the magnolia instead, delighting in its vibrant colour.

  1. That is truly glorious. Such a bright spot of colour when other trees are still drab around it. It lifts your spirits doesn’t it?

  2. Lovely Liz!!! And amazing that you can enjoy spring 🌼🌼 in your corner of the blogosphere while most of us are prepared for the fall. Both seasons have its charm but I prefer spring, when nature wakes up after the winter.🌹🌸

      1. I love the spring best too – with all the promise of summer to come. Autumn is lovely but makes me feel a little sad – however, I’m telling myself that nature needs a rest over winter so that everything can come back with new energy and life in the spring…
