As you can surmise all my outdoor plants are all long asleep. I sending you two photos of the same Saucer Magnolia. One last spring and one this winter. The winter photo was taken during the beginning of the snowstorm. We already had a few inches of snow on the ground. We ended up with a total of 14 inches in 48 hours.

Very pretty! Welcome! to ATP.

Your snowy scene looks very familiar. Big Grin I don't really know how much we had through the period, but it took most of the day today to shovel out vehicles, walks and driveways. Now we're just waiting for the county snowplows to come down our road so that we can actually leave! Hilarious!

Do you know which Magnolia you have? It looks very similar to ours.

Love your mature Tulip Magnolias! Our is still a babe, just 8 feet tall. I want to prune it. The pictures with the Christmas lights gives me a good idea of what to do with ours. Thanks for that!
