I wish I could grow magnolias. I have tried and failed miserably. That is a stunning tree.

Looking back at my pics I would stress that the branches catching the sunlight are not part of it that is a Chestnut tree not yet in leaf

Ah yes, still, it's pretty huge. Interestingly the RHS has it as 4-8m, which is quite a range, so some specimens must grow a lot taller than others...or I guess, it depends on where you live, in which case I should be ok! When I saw yours I thought I might have to move mine to the boundary, which I still might do while it is so small.

Lots of flowers on yours Bjs. I bought 'Leonard Messel' last year because of the pinkish flowers. It is still in the pot. I already have 2 white stellatas which were on the property when we moved in some years back. I hope that mine will do as well as yours.
