Hubert!

I saw my second and third magnolia today.  The only problem was, the petals/leaves of the flower were already falling to the ground.  I guess it is because of all of the weather and temperature changes we are having here.  One day it's freezing cold and the next day it may be in the high 60s or low 70s and then back down to low low temps at night.  But even with so many blooms lost, the trees still looked magnificent!

Wow, I am looking at the show The Voice on my tv and the lady is singing a song with the words "abosolutely beautiful". That is strange!

 

I haven't seen my first magnolia blooms yet this year.

Evening Hubert!

I'm still here too.  But the only trees I've seen lately,  look like these.....

I guess though, soon enough we'll be able to find magnolias in all their glory and in full bloom like these....

Take care til then,

Lydia

The Magnolia Tree

 

It stands tall in splendor with its glossy green leaves 
reaching out to the sun. 
Just its mere presence makes you feel so small. 
Magnificent in stature long after its birth, 
It's trunk remains rooted well to the earth. 
Strictly a Southern treasure which is well-recognized, 
A heritage shows with every sunrise. 
Many frontier tales can sound its power, 
while ancestors can remember waiting 
for its abundant bloom. 
White blossomed flowers delicate for a bride, 
yet large enough for plentiful bouquets of 
resplendent wealth to the eyes of the beholder. 
Yes, for all to see is the beauty of a tree. 
Much to my amazement is gazing upon this gift of nature, 
One sees the deep lines of life weaving its story. 
The Magnolia Tree is one of glory. 

 

A Poem by Karen Egleston

Hi Lydia,

   Thank you for the insight about DNA. You is right about just "enjoy their wistful beauty." Here is one magnolia tree, "beside the road,"on road.jpg"Magnolia beside the road"

 

I saw two days ago. Did any one see a magnolia tree today?

Hello, Hubert!

From what I have read,  all living things on Earth have DNA.  So I would say "yes, magnolia trees have DNA."  But since I'm not a scientist,  I will just continue to enjoy their wistful beauty whenever I am blessed to find one.
