    1. It looks lovely from upstairs windows, Jo as they are level with the canopy

  2. That's a gorgeous Magnolia Sue :) It's definitely worth the wait isn't it! What name is it?
    I tried to grow 'susan' 'Stellata' and one other variety her but they just didn't survive.
    Such beautiful flowers though.

    1. We just bought it as Magnolia soulangiana, Linda and the label showed it as a dark purple but once it flowered it was this colour. By then we didn't want to dig it up. My sister has a tree that came from a cutting that I took years ago.

    1. It is always like this, Jo - every year but the flowers soon start to drop.

  6. Just better late Sue! I have noticed a number of plants delayed by the awful weather, because they are late, are not being damaged by night frost. My pieris red foliage is brilliant this year, it normally is frosted to a brown mess. Visitors to my friend Peter's Open day on Sunday saw a magnificent display- as featured on my previous post.

    1. That's what I am hoping too, Roger. Our pieris is lovely this year too.

    1. The wind today isn't doing the tree any favours, Kelli nor the fruit blossom.
