Day 267 of my ‘A Photo A Day’ project.
When I was younger we planted a small magnolia tree down the bottom of our garden for my Mum, who loved them. As I grew up so did the magnolia tree, until finally it was too big for our garden. We dug it up and gave it to friends, who planted it in their garden instead. Shortly afterwards we bought a standard magnolia… a smaller version which now grows in a large pot on our patio. Every year we get these magnificent flowers and the first has just started to open, so I thought it was worthy of todays photo!
