{Magnolia Stages}

Our two HUGE Magnolia Grandiflora the trees go through different stages. Husband Pieter did make this photo series on June 13, to show you more about it.
Here you see a fully opened up flower from the Fragrant Magnolia Grandiflora 'Namnetensis Full Flore' and Pieter did place the US $ 0.01 for comparison.
This one is still budding in October ...
Yes, we are going backward, this is still more closed.
And this is a totally closed up bud.
Bud Developing ...
This is the beginning of a new leaf!
Funny with an old leaf still attached around the new budding leaf ...
Beautiful photo showing a budding October leaf and the seed pod, after the bloom has blossomed.
From the beginning of our driveway ... This Fragrant Magnolia Grandiflora 'Namnetensis Flore Pleno' is HUGE. We planted it in October 1992 together with the Quercus virginiana Grand View Gold, you see to the right. Both are our most expensive trees on the property!
Here the Grand View Gold, life oak tree to the left looks more striking.
ALSO we did detect several pesky  Saw Greenbrier, Catbrier, Bullbrier  que had clinic Their Way up ... Of course, They got cut off!
This is from the driveway near the house, showing Also part of our Windmill Palm.
Walking now across the entire property, a photo taken from the neighbor's side, showing our other Magnolia Grandiflora Virginiana.
That one is HUGE as well and is sitting on the lawn ...
From a different angle, with the huge Also, trimmed up oak tree next to it.
Also do you have such a giant Magnolia tree in your yard?

{Rose with Heart Petal}

Mother Nature sometimes is full of surprises!
Like this rose that was blooming with an additional Heart Petal...
Do you see it?
Just below the stamens, a little to the left...
Light is a bit different here, so you get another view.
And a closeup with some back light from the sun!
Have you ever seen such a rose?

{White Gladiolus in Cylinder Vase}

This year we were lucky for having a bouquet of our own, white gladiolus!
This was on May 31.
Looking just lovely and I have to admit that for me white is my favorite!
The light changes these flowers all the time...
Too bad we were leaving within two days so we could not fully enjoy them!
