Magnolia Grandiflora Flowers

If only you could smell this. The most fabulous fragrance in the world - Magnolia grandiflora flowers. And I have a tree outside my office in full flower, so there are plenty to spare to pick and bring inside. What a treat to arrive at my office and have this permeating the air. Delicious.

Incidently - this species is one of my favourite trees. Perfect as a lawn specimen in a formal garden, or mixed in with Totara Trees and NZ natives for a more informal look. Evergreen, with big olive green and russet leaves - and then this flower in summer and autumn. Just beautiful. x
