Thank you Barbara. It’s been a real eye opener today looking more closely at the tree bark. I must admit I hadn’t really appreciated just how pretty it is. The sunlight highlighted the colours and texture perfectly 😊 @jacaranda

I agree, Angela. Apart from my Prunus serrula I’ve never given tree bark much thought but today has been an eye-opener! 😳🤣😘

The wind has blown this about and all its stamen have fallen off, but it’s still valiantly holding on to them, cupped in its lower petals. #bullbay #magnolia #magnolia-grandiflora #evergreen #white #stamen

Another huge scented magnolia flower, with the added bonus of being just above head level! Approx 25cm across. To give an idea of perspective, the water feature is 40cm diameter 🤍 #magnolia #magnolia-grandiflora #bullbay #evergreen #white #bestofjuly #waterfeature

The wind is really causing havoc outside, but these flowers are valiantly holding their own at the top of the tree despite being hammered by the wind. #magnolia #bullbay #magnolia-grandiflora #abouttoburst
