looks lovely, didn't think the flowers were that big.

Yes,it's going to grow (slowly) into a large tree! I love Magnolias - especially the white ones.

Yes, Neellan, all due to the cold winter delaying the Magnolia flowers - the Narcissi are on time. :-))))

Aint Nature wonderful.... precision timing for your display this year :o)

13 Apr, 2010

 

The Magnolias are magnificent this year......

13 Apr, 2010

 

They are, I agree - in the gardens on the way into town, they're just fantastic!

Thanks, Holly - it might be the first and last time I get to see them flowering at the same time!

14 Apr, 2010

 

Really lovely. I thought there would be some all at once spring shots over there this year. A welcome sight these two performing together.

14 Apr, 2010

 

I do so agree! I'm enjoying seeing them every day! :-)))))

What a beautiful sight Your magnolia is wonderful Spritz.......

14 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks, Ray/Jane. It's the best it's been since I planted it 5 years ago. :-)))

Oh..maybe the cold winter was what has spurred it to flower so well ? Just a theory....Janette was saying the same about her Ribes...

14 Apr, 2010

 

I wondered - but it could just be that it's one more year older, couldn't it!

14 Apr, 2010

 

Hm...maybe another winter like the last will tell ! On the other hand...lets go with the age theory !!

14 Apr, 2010

 

Ohhhhh noooo don't even THINK that! I shall definitely hibernate if that happens again! :-((((((((((((((

14 Apr, 2010

 

Ditto ! We almost did !!!!!!

14 Apr, 2010

 

You were almost FORCED to, weren't you?

14 Apr, 2010

 

Yes...under piles of snow for weeks on end ! Shudder...a distant memory now...thank goodness !

14 Apr, 2010

 

Ahem....Have you seen the forrecast for next week? We'll all need our winter woollies again, I suspect. :-(((

14 Apr, 2010

 

Darent look Spritz...please ..NO...............

14 Apr, 2010

 

I shall watch the latest forecast at 10.35 after reading the paper today. Not good, although only a short period, apparently. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

14 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Spritz..will check it out on the news too...thanks....last thing we need though !

14 Apr, 2010

 

Too true. :-(((

14 Apr, 2010

 

Ouch, and there was I just thinking it was a nasty rumour regarding bad weather coming in! Lovely magnolia Spritz, I have had one in my garden for years, but don't think it likes my soil. I know they hate being moved, but hoping I can pass it on to a friend who has acidic soil if it survives being dug up that is! :~((

15 Apr, 2010

 

I have neutral soil, Flori - and you can see that mine is thriving! i agree - I don''t think they appreciate being moved.

15 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Spritz......Jane been planting out too today ! Pm sent earlier......

15 Apr, 2010

 

Yes - I'm about to answer it! :-)))

15 Apr, 2010

 

Lol !

15 Apr, 2010

 

Honest! I have now. :-)))

15 Apr, 2010

 

lovely together ;o)

16 Apr, 2010

 

I've been lucky this year, haven't I, to see them flowering at the same time.

16 Apr, 2010

 

yes i think all spring flowers have done so well this year barbara, must have been the extra cold winter, everything is so bright

16 Apr, 2010

 

Well, we needed a 'boost', didn't we!

16 Apr, 2010

16 Apr, 2010
