Saucer Magnolia

These buds have been getting bigger over the past couple of weeks, shedding layers in the process.

Last week I saw a handful of buds like this on each tree.

Now there are too many to count. Some buds even have little hairy leaves peeking out.

Foliage doesn't usually emerge until after full bloom, but the occasional renegade adds a refreshing bit of green to all the fuschia.


  1. positively amazing, and beautiful, and suggestively Georgia-O'Keefe-like, if you get my meaning.

  2. is this the same saucer magnolia as in the february 7 post?

  3. Wow, those buds are really colorful. Beautiful!
