I just had to return to the church garden in Cerne Abbas yesterday and there was the beautiful lemon scented bloom moving on to its next stage
with petals thick and rust coloured feeling like chamois leather,
leaving this beautiful candlewhat to do with the petals ….
Hmm….. do you ever do things like this?
Reminding me of this post back in April 2012, which inspired this mandala on a bird bath.
A higher bloom shone out and I was able to bend down the branch to breathe in that delicious scent
And as you can see I discovered its name is Magnolia Grandiflora – I’m definitely going to see if one will grow in my garden.
