It's time for another floral friday!

This week's flower is the magnolia. I brought home a few branches from a walk through the park the other day and I just love them!

A few facts about the magnolia:
  • The magnolia is named after the French botanist Pierre Magnol.
  • The magnolia is the state tree for Mississippi and the state flower for Louisiana.
  • Magnolias are very robust and easy to grow.

    Magnolia trees are beautiful. Their flowers are so pretty. I've been told though that it takes a magnolia tree 10 yrs. to produce flowers. I don't know if this is true though. Have a super great weekend.

    First time visitor through a linky-party. Beautiful photography work here! I hope to photograph flowers soon. I live on the south shore of New England, and there's not much out there yet! But SOON, spring will come and STAY!
