Our Japanese Magnolias in Full Bloom

Due to some extremely warm days in January we had our Japanese Magnolia in Bloom on January 27! That was Mom's 2nd anniversary in heaven...
Strange as they usually would bloom on her Birthday, February 12!
Here they are already shedding their petals, on February 4!
But because of some dark weather I could not make photos...
Photo is taken from the neighbor's side, over the Vinyl Picket Fence towards our home.
This is taken from our side towards the road.
It is not entirely blue skies but enough light in-betweeen.
Looking at our veranda and kitchen bay window area.
Our patio is not yet filled with all planters, they still remain in the greenhouse.
Love this Vinyl Picket Fence!
This photo I also used for new header...
Oh, how I love those Blooms!
Here you see the fully open bloom and the more closed ones.
Petals are falling...
This is perfect, the color against the Southern Magnolia as a back drop.
Sad that for only about 2 weeks you can enjoy them!
That is, without frost as they turn brown and floppy...
Had to share these beauties with you.
We do have a second tree which is a lot later and not as good as one year a huge pine tree fell into it, splitting it in half.
But it survived and we get some flowers every spring.
After heavy rains and thunderstorms on the 7th of February, this was the view on February 9, from our veranda.
By the way, these 3 windows need to get a new Fleur de Lys crocheted curtain later.
Only 50 hours...

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Just gorgeous! We call these tulip magnolias. I don't have one in our garden, but there are many in the neighborhood. They are in bloom now.

      Yes, also in Dutch we called them like that and they do resemble the tulip very much!
      It is but a brief period but we better do enjoy them while they last.
      Hugs,

    1. Dearest Claudia,
      A tiny garden is a bit of a problem indeed.
      In my hometown of Horst, The Netherlands there was a villa and in that garden there was a huge Japanese magnolia tree. Till they had to take it away for changing the width of the road... So sad.
      Hugs and happy new week.

  7. We sure had unusually warm days in January. Looks like your Japanese Magnolias fully enjoyed it :-) They are so gorgeous. I love the header photo and the close-ups! Their pink flowers look so pretty over the white fence!

      Yes, we were lucky this year as there was no more frost so the buds could fully grow out and open up. We had so many years that they all turned brown.
      Let's enjoy this beauty while it lasts.
      Happy new week to you and hugs,
      Mariette

  10. Wunderschön, liebe Mariette! Bei uns dauert das noch eine Weile, bis die Magnolien blühen!
    Endlich komme ich auch mal wieder hierher. Mußte das Sitzen am PC leider einschränken und bin daher mehr auf Instagram zu finden.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  12. Oohhh wat heerlijk...was het hier maar zo ver...
    Toch wel een van de mooist bloeiende struiken/bomen...
    Hier mogen we blij zijn dat de helleborussen en de sneeuwklokjes deze week eens goed in bloei komen...

    1. Beste Marian,
      Ja, inderdaad is het een van de mooiste bloeiende struiken. In mijn geboorteplaats Horst bewonderde ik als kind een enorme Magnolia boom die elke lente zó mooi bloeide. Totdat de weg verbreed werd en een groot stuk van de tuin bij deze villa wegging. Er is enkele jaren geleden ook nog een 150 jaar oude rode beuk weggehaald: http://bit.ly/2l5B4d0
      Dat zijn stukken geschiedenis...
      Hier bij ons is het meer een grote struik! Teveel competitie van de grote bomen en arme grond zonder waterhoudend vermogen.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  13. Dearest Mariette - thank you for sharing your beautiful Japanese Magnolia tree with us ... Here in Toronto we can use all the reminders of spring ... it's been non -stop snowing all day --- we are buried in snow despite the numerous rounds of shoveling all day... wishing you both a blessed week ahead. Hugs, C.

      You're quite welcome and I'm only glad to share its beauty with more people than just us admiring it.
      Wow what a snow day you got all day long. In The Netherlands we often did have snow, it used to be Mom's birthday...
      Sending you both hugs and blessings for the new week!

  16. So very beautiful, dear Mariette! Extra special that you can see this beautiful tree from your windows, too. These Magnolias will grow here and I have always wanted one. My Mother had one in her front yard and it would bloom around Easter time. So special that it is blooming for your dear Mother's anniversary. Sending hugs xo Karen

    1. Dearest Karen,
      It sure is extra special in connection with my Mom's anniversary. Like a God-wink, down from heaven.
      Your northern region is in line with my home town in The Netherlands where they do bloom around Easter time as well.
      Hugs and happy weekend,
