Magnolia fragrance

Magnolia and leek flowers

With the doors open in my office, I have been smelling this heady perfume, and couldn't figure it out, as none of the vases in my office have fragrant flowers in them today. Just clicked - it is the Magnolia grandiflora in the garden that has several flowers open.  The smell is incredible. I wish I could send it through via the computer! One of my very very favourite trees, even without the flowers. What a treat! (now have two buds in a vase, see above.....)


  1. How gorgeous Rachel! I wish I had one of those in my garden...sigh!
    Hope you are having a good day :))
