I own two Magnolia trees, one white and one pink. "Jane" is my favorite. (The pink)
I just bought another Jane, about two feet tall.
The white one is larger and definitely more fragrant. It sits outside the east extention of our home, outside the study window. The Jane Magnolia sits north by our back yard. It stands outside my kitchen window and greets me every morning as I have my coffee. Unfortunately the strong winds and low temps the past three days have crippled the poor trees leaving the defenseless petals wrinkling in the evenings frost. I'm so grateful I took some photos. My husband often laughs when he sees me heading into the garden with a camera always in hand. I tell him that I just feel as if they are part of my family and in a way they are.
