For All The Big Hearted People, Who Would Like A Big Bloom To Match. Story Within.

Behold, A Giant Of Giants!!! 30 Centimetres In Diameter and Absolutely Beautiful Magnolia.
Well it has been some time since last uploading a flower, thought I would
upload one from my Daughters property.
This magnificent giant bloom is something worth seeing
It is the Southern Magnolia (Magnolia Grandiflora)
Grows to an unbelievable heights, it is a handsome evergreen tree that will grow
up to 24 metres tall and 20 metres wide.
The flowers are creamy white and between (20 to 30 cm in diameter), they have
a wonderful fragrance.
It blooms in May to June, whilst other cultivars bloom in summer.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend?
Walkabout John.

    The magnolias in Switzerland have just started blooming. They look magnificent as well, though they are not 30 cm in diameter!
    Very nice shot!

    All the best, David

    Your flower is a real beauty. She looks like a queen.
    The flower is really immaculate. Excellent work.
    Today we made a bicycle tour of 3,5 hours.
    It was very windy, but the sun shone.
    We have now a beautiful muscular strain and are glad that we can sit on the couch.
    Many greetings from
