March 2012 Bloom Day

15 Mar 2012
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.

Your Magnolia is beautiful!
Does your Osmanthus set seed?…….. any to swap? I know it is a long term project, but I heavily into trees!!!! My magnolia is just 10cm high at the moment and needless to say no flowers in sight yet!!!!
