Spring Magnolia Garden

The magnolia trees in Queens Park are wonderfully messy, exuberant trees in spring. The writhing branches are covered in bountiful blossom and soon large petals are scattered over the lawn. It’s heavenly to wander among them, like being in fairyland. Some blossoms are scented.. this place is more like paradise!

  1. Such lovely trees and wonderful flowers. They bring back memories of our former Magnolia that was also a lovely tree. That is, until our 2013 sneak attack by winter at the end of October. Power out for days and many trees damaged including ours that split down the middle. 😦
    It’s nice to see your lovely Spring blooms and the best kind of snow cover below them.

  2. Beautiful! I love magnolias and wish I had room for one in my garden but must be content with enjoying the ones at our local arboretum. Always a welcome sight in Spring which is still many months away for us here.

  3. It must be amazing to be able to see so many magnolias at once, especially when they’re scented too. Hope you were quick enough getting into your car!

    1. It’s so nice to hear that you enjoyed seeing these Linda. The dark sky heralded a huge rainstorm that hit just as we got back to our car.. there was a real deluge!
