  1. 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.


  2. 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:
