The Grandiflora Magnolia is one of the finest trees. It stands tall and majestic outside our front door shading us in the heat of the summer and sending out a firework display of enormous fragrant flowers for months.
After these incredible creamy flowers have opened and bloomed the husks then rain down to the ground like so many hand grenades, their shell like geometry making them perfect for my son to ‘explode’.
One incredible flower whether as opulent as the Grandiflora Magnolia or as simple as a rose transforms a mantelpiece or a kitchen bench lending both grace and natural beauty. The power of a flower is amazing and adds optimism to any home.
