I love magnolia buds, sadly wont grow in my garden. Their seed heads are even better
I have been looking out for them and saw this one yesterday although it could have been there since the w/e I suppose – in a way it always seems symbolic to me that spring has definitely started, more so than crocus and daffs. This one belonged to the Golfer’s mother and has been moved several times but has romped since it finally had a settled spot – romped a bit too much, really! Sorry to hear they don’t like your garden 😦
Lovely harbinger of spring.
That is a stunning photo with hope for a lovely spring season. 🙂
Oh that is absolutely STUNNING! I forgot their buds were fuzzy!!
I have just one so far, the pink star magnolia ‘Leonard Messel’. It has buds, but not very big and not yet open. I will need to be patient for a year or two I think. 😦
I have a small pink one too but it is not very generous with its flowers – doesn’t help that it’s not planted in the best position I shouldn’t think! It’s always much later than this one though
Spring has finally arrived in the Ozarks as well. Trees are blooming and the grass is turning green. Have a great Wordless Wednesday.
Spring is even more looked forward to after a tough winter I guess…
Oh! How beautiful. We are still buried in snow, so I’m a bit jealous of your spring.
Thanks – hope you won’t be waiting much longer…
What a beauty! Our tulip magnolia is just starting to bloom. I’m so excited!
It really does signal spring, seeing that first magnolia bloom, doesn’t it?!
Oh how lovely to see it just emerging from its furry bud. Fingers crossed that we have no frosts to ruin them. Otherwise we’ ll all be out there with tablecloths and curses.
That conjures up a lovely image, Chloris, of you and your tablecloths and curses…. don’t do either myself…. 😉
Oh dear, is it just me? I thought everybody does it.
Looks SOOOO soft! The buds are very tactile. Sadly, the buds on my Magnolia stellata are worrying me. They don’t seem to be swelling at all.
Hope yours swell soon, Ali – it does seem to happen very quickly….
So pretty. I have shared a magnolia bloom that’s a bit further along the way to fully open. Please come link up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/03/springtime-at-last.html and share your photo there!
Spring is coaxing that fragile blossom out of its cozy housecoat. Hooray!
Great analogy, rickii, definitely a cosy housecoat!!
