  1. one of my all time favourites we left one behind when we moved, conditions on a windy coastal bungalow estate not ideal the wind would be too cold

    1. Once the winds get up the flowers don't last long David. I can't see the plant appreciating cold, salt ladened, winds.

  3. Very nice. Did you take one photo a day or does it go from bud to bloom over a longer period than that?

  6. Oh what a beautiful journey from bud to bloom Sue. Our next door neighbour has a large magnolia which has been planted most considerately allowing us to enjoy the blooms too. Thanks so much for your comments regarding butterbur on my recent post. I'm still investigating :)

    1. It's getting very wet at the moment Janneke which will spoil the blooms.

  8. The next door neighbours had a magnificent 40 plus year old Magnolia × soulangeana 'Nigra' chopped down to make way for their new extension about six weeks ago. I have still not got over it ...........sacrilege!
