A Southern Magnolia in North Texas~

This season our Southern Magnolia Tree is gorgeous. 
Most of the time, you only see a few blooms at once.
The show this year is more then usual
with many flowers at once.
Very rare to see.

She is a tall beauty and stands in our front yard.
 It's loaded with blooms bursting with white flowers the size of dinner plates.

The scent is heavenly!

I love to save the magnolia cones when they drop.
They make great elements to decorate with.

At Christmas I use the leaves to create wreaths and garland.

Just sharing a bit of the south
in North Texas.

I'll be back to share  a large project
creating a flagstone patio.

See you soon and have a great weekend.
