#magnolia wish GTags had smell-a-vision!! Magnolia blossoms smell like lemon citrus. Magnolias are starting to wilt. They'll be back next season. Gardenias are done for this season as well. It's been a busy weekend & another busy day in my crop fields today. Have a beautiful day/evening y'all ! *haven't logged onto GTags in a few days, trying to catch up, making GTags rounds... it's almost impossible!! 🙈 XOXO

Soooo fragrant this morning!! Stunning blooms, only complaint is after they've fully bloomed, blooms are gorg for a couple of days at the most then start to turn yellow. When the Mag trees are in full bloom they are breath taking!! #magnolia #louisianatrees

Just to give you an idea of how big our Magnolia trees are in Louisiana. @jeatacake @jyotu *pic taken in early April when it was in full bloom. It's still blooming but not as pretty or abundant. I have another variety of Magnolia, it doesn't grow as tall & blooms in June. They're both evergreens.

Beautiful! Never seen one with that many blooms. I was in Baton Rouge last year with Samaritan's Purse building a new house for flood victims. Are you anywhere near that area?

This one looks fabulous too. I was in Wichita, Kansas 18 months ago & saw a few there & got some seeds from an evergreen type, which are now 3 inch tall seedlings! Hope to live long enough to see them flower, lol!

@jeatacake this magnolia is about 30 yrs old. There are 2 on the property. My fmly has owned this property for 60+ yrs. I have 2 other magnolias of a diff variety that i planted 13 yrs ago. They're a nice size but it takes yrsss to get the size of this one.
