This magnolia blooms so early in the spring, that often there is very little green but what is on this young tree. For whatever reason, however, in its second year here with us in Michigan, this species of magnolia has chosen to bloom throughout the summer here and there. I walked out as a dark sky promised to let loose and in the dark lower branches, closest to the ground, this lone bud sat ready to unfold into the magnificence of her best Spring self. Apparently she isn't confused at all. It must be me! :)
She sits in the middle of a garden circle surrounded by peonies and spirea. So, the lower part of her branches are cool and shaded. Maybe this helps. Who knows. Nature's gifts. Truly a wondrous miracle for all of us who love flowers.
