from home, and when I did I was smitten. The
Magnolia Blossom is the state flower for Mississippi
and Louisiana. However, they grow beautifully in Texas
as well. Even their leaves are striking- as they are very
waxy, deep green and large.
Our neighbor has two magnificent Magnolia Trees and she keeps
me well supplied with several blossoms each week-I just had to take
some pictures and share them with you.
I found this little poem to share as well-
The Magnolia Tree-By Patricia Neely-Dorsey
There's a majestic, old Magnolia Tree,
That stands in my front yard;
It's a tree that's grown there for ages,
And whose beauty you cannot disregard.
She spreads her branches quite nobly.
She spreads her arms so commandingly,
As if certainly crying out to be seen.
Shes the center of much activity,
And I know a squirrel family lives there;
I'm sure she affords them much comfort,
For her branches don't ever go bare.
There's so much that has gone around her,
Did I mention their fragrance?
One word heavenly!
