Ruby Tuesday - Saucer Magnolia


The Saucer Magnolia, (Magnolia Soulangeana), is one of the earliest blooming of the ornamental trees.  It holds its blooms for a week or two then drops its petals to form a pink carpet under the tree.

That is absolutely gorgeous and how lovely to see blossom after a long, hard winter.

Beautiful colors. I don't see this tree in our area.

Brilliant blossoms!


A RED-LESS DAY?

“Oh, my goodness, oh, my dear!
Don’t you think it’s very clear
That a red-less day’s a drag?”

Are these flowering now in Mississippi? How I wish they would survive here in Edmonton! One of these years I will just have to make the trip. My son has some friends down there he wants to see too so why not?
