@krobra, @vic, @lovemyhouse, @plantmanager Wow, that was a surprise. I checked in to see whose banner was posted and it was mine! Magnolias are one of my favorites and their fragrance in the evening is something to behold. Thanks to each of you for the thumbs.

@plantmanager That was something I missed the 30 years we were in Illinois. Have our own trees in FL. Had one in AR but it hasn't done too well, probably because it has to compete with all the trees in our yard and it isn't an understory tree.

@TBGDN, @pepper23 Thank you for the thumbs, @EscondidoCal We have three in FL, one in the front and two in the back. I'll look for the whole image. Might take awhile.

@EscondidoCal Here is the entire image.

Didn't take as long as I thought it might. Sometimes I search seemingly forever for a picture I am sure I have.

@Fleur569 Thank You! for the acorn. Another candidate for the "scratch and sniff" would be the epi "Queen of the Night." Maybe some day Sighing!

I love magnolias. But I especially love the way your picture was framed in the banner.

Think I may have picked my last 2 magnolias today. My tree covers my whole front yard and this year seems like I've had a bumper crop of blooms.

Thanks, Jean...that's very pretty.
I've been so busy, I haven't looked to see how mine are doing.
Need to "stop & smell the magnolias." Smiling

@tx_flower_child Thank You! for the acorn and Thumbs up It did seem that we had a bumper crop of blooms this year, too. @GaNinFl You are so right about the leaves making a mess!
@EscondidoCal Do take time to stop and smell the magnolias, otherwise you will have to wait another year for them. @pirl, @pod Thank You! for the thumbs, @ge1836. Hope I haven't missed anyone. I am so happy so many of you stopped by to make a comment.
