Here is another magnolia which grows up by the side of the Civic Centre.  It is a lovely deep pink colour, I think.

Nothing like the colour magnolia which paint companies sell in tins.

This flower was a little blurred but I thought I’d post it anyway.

one huge pink magnolia!

There is also a lovely pink flowering cherry tree which is out at the moment too.

Yes, that is the right way up!  Taken from underneath…

And a lovely pink camellia too…

It has gone really warm the last couple of days and I sat out in the garden for a few minutes yesterday.  I couldn’t help noticing that the flies were sitting still too, sunning themselves…

I won’t show you the photos of the spiders…

    Hi The blossom looks so gorgeous. My poor little Camelia is trying to flower. It tries it’s hardest but its too harsh here really. Helen
