Two Magnolia Blossoms Opened This Morning in My Garden: Event of My Day!

May it be so for you.

Magnolias are interesting trees. They are considered to be some of the most primitive of the flowering plants. (That is, the ancestors of modern flowering plants looked very much like magnolias, from leaf shape to pollen grain morphology.) The trees have spirally arranged leaves, petals, and various other flower parts, a rather unique trait among angiosperms. I've been enjoying the blooms on the tree in my own front yard, even though the tree won't be as great as it could be, since it's a bit out of its natural range.

Thanks for the info! They're lovely aren't they?

And they smell good, too.
