Pretty Magnolia Flowers

By
Real Estate Agent with ZipRealty

I took some photos of my Magnolia tree today that I thought to share. This is a tree that I didn't know was going to make it or not after the hard freeze past winter. (We don't get hard freezes in Austin/Volente, but once in a blue moon.) As you can see it came back very well with very pretty blooms.

Wish you can smell them as well. Magnolias are one of my favorite flowers...just magnificent flowers.

Magnolias are such a beautiful flower. We have them growing like weeds here and when they're in bloom, there's millions of them!

Joshua-Thanks for enjoying them. They are indeed great! Lydia

Craig-Yes. I remember when we lived in Raleigh how beautiful the magnolias were along with dogwoods and Azaleas. In Central TX, they're not as common, especially the Azaleas (I miss them), but we do have 2-3 weeks of beautiful Prickly Pear flowers :) Thanks, Lydia

Hi Lydia, thanks for sharing your pretty Magnolia flowers.  We of course have them in Florida as well and I always enjoy their fragrance and the delicate beauty of the blossoms.
