Green Thumb Sunday

This is the magnolia tree that burst into bloom the past few days. Today is supposed to be pretty windy, so it'll look a bit worse for the wear tomorrow, I'm sure. (Photo taken yesterday, just before the Christmas lights came down.)

The flowers are fragrant, but you have to put your nose right up in them to smell it. Kind of a sweet soapy smell - just lovely. Go ahead, give it a good whiff. :o)

I think I've told you before that this tree was a birthday gift many years ago from Sara and Hannah - just a stick when I got it, and it has been one of the best presents ever. :o)

(I found GTS on this gardening blog, and I wanted to join the blogroll, but so far haven't figured it out. So I'm just going ahead and posting plant photos on Sundays for my own little GTS party. :o) Yes, I borrowed the button, but I'm linking the blog so you can get the info for yourself if interested.)
