  1. Beautiful photos.😊 At Health garden here in Kristianstad, which contains several gardens, there is a beautiful magnolia grove.

  2. Yes, Jo, a large magnolia tree in bloom is lovely. These photographs were actually taken in late April a few years ago in Kew Gardens. I wonder what is happening to that tree right now. I can only speculate that it will have been adversely affected by all the icy cold weather this year. Perhaps I can find out.

  3. That is a lovely poem, Peacockpoetryblog. The title “Steel Magnolias” reminded me that in the autumn of last year while at Kew Gardens, there was a sculpture called “Copper in Bloom” by Andy Young which was made of copper pipe stems with china flowers, mimicking a magnolia tree in bloom:

  4. What an interesting idea for a sculpture! Thanks for sharing! I have never been to Kew Gardens but must make it there one of these days!

  5. I am sure that you would find much to enjoy, and more inspiration for your poetry, on a day visit to the wonderful and extensive gardens at Kew.
