"My colors are blush and bashful!" ~Shelby (Steel Magnolias)

I'm not exactly sure how magnolias got associated with the South, but it probably had something to do with the movie "Steel Magnolias." It seems that magnolias really enjoy the California sunshine, and all over my neighborhood, they're blooming. The flowers are quite delicate and beautiful. The magnolia pictured, goes by two names, known as a "Japanese Magnolia," or a "Saucer Magnolia." It adds so much beauty to a spring landscape, and is a sure favorite with many gardeners adoring flowering trees.

Hi Abby,
I've never seen this type of magnolia and they are just beautiful! The standard big, white magnolias, which grow so well here, grow huge and abundantly in the south. That's why they are so well associated with that region. I've heard of magnolias in the south that take over entire yards they are so large!
I miss our flickr group but have been insanely busy. Maybe next week - after the root canal - yikes!
