The Return of the Magnolias

This winter we are having a lovely burst of magnolia blooms.

Some standing in rows like birds on a wire

... ready to bloom some more and reveal their whiteness within.

Ethereal in some light

In the past few years possums have clambered from our carport and eaten
the furry green buds before they ever reached this stage.

But this year the magnolia has fought back and is half-covered in blooms.

Just beautiful.
