March 2012 Bloom Day
Thursday, 15 Mar 12 Partly Sunny 22°C / 72°F
Well, I think the magnolia heard me thinking dark thoughts about it all winter long and made a stupendous effort to stay potential execution. It looks amazing this year with well over a dozen blooms. Last year it only provided one bloom and then moped around with rust fungus leaves all summer. It might also be that it liked the mild winter, but I prefer to think that it is telepathic …
I didn’t realize that the blooms are actually lightly fragrant – they smell like narcissus!
Photos of one of the blooms, the wee treelet, and (of course) a disgruntled cat in a pot.

Will be blooming any day now with the warm weather.
Still flowering – hasn’t let up all winter!
Magnolia x soulangeana
Stunning this year!
