Magnolia Grandiflora

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,

Hmm….. do you ever do things like this? DSC_0811

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 scentDSC_0801

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.
