I was struck by the large size of these magnolia flowers. They are growing on older trees. The closed one on top was the size of a grapefruit. You would have to use two hands to hold the one in the middle. They shrink as they wilt and look sort of like banana peels.Their fragrance is sweet and mild.

  1. I love a magnolia tree … they remind me of my time in North Carolina as a little girl (and of many places ever since). The smell is wonderful. Beautiful!
