My Magnificent Magnolia

 

The picture above is my entry for the Picture This Contest on Gardening  Gone Wild. I have Right Click inabled here, so THIS is a link to a downloadable picture.

Magnolias are border line hardy in my neck of the woods, so this Magnolia kobus var. borealis that I bought in Sweden and planted in 2002 is a particular darling of mine. This year it is flowering with around a hundred flowers and it smells deliciously. While I took this picture I could hear the sound of a hundred thousand hockey fans celebrating (in the very very far distance) the Finnish Ice Hockey World Championship gold at the market square in the center of Helsinki. I was much more taken with my magnolia..

 Osallistun taas Gardening Gone Wildin valokuvauskisaan, joten sen takia teksti on englanniksi.

Jag deltar igen i Gardening Gone Wilds fotograferingstävling så därför är texten bara på engelska.

    All of the images are spectacular but I am particularly drawn to the magnolia…. you captured the texture of the petals beautifully. I wanted to reach into the frame and touch them!

    What a lovely bloom…. it must be an amazing tree. I have never seen a pure white magnolia! Stunning….

    Ai että rakastan mangoliaa, taidan pitää sitä kauneimpana kukkana jonka tiedän. Sitä en tiennyt että esikkoja on myös valkoisena, haluaisin heti niitä:)ReplyCancel
