Magnificent Mini Magnolia
Because of last year's drought, we lost a lot of trees and bushes. We replaced all of them in the fall with other plants and are trying to keep them alive in somewhat similar conditions this summer. One of the trees we bought as a replacement is this mini magnolia. I love magnolias, but everyone told me that they tend to be very messy and that the mini versions are much better. Ours is only about 4 ft. tall, but the first buds are starting to bloom (above). The magnolia always brings to mind (at least to me), the slow, southern summers.
