May provided the perfect opportunity for magnolia photography, with all of the buds still left to bloom on our tree. The southern magnolia is one of my favorite spring flowers. Its large fragrant blooms smell so sweet, and are fun to watch from the time they bud to the day they open.
Pro Tip: Cut magnolia flowers at the base (leaving a little stem) and float in a glass bowl for a romantic centerpiece
The Southern Magnolia (grandiflora) is a classic here in the southern United States. The tree can grow quite large, and its dense foliage provides lots of shade. Shiny dark green leaves stay green year-round, and the scent of the flowers is absolutely intoxicating.
These flower photos will look sweet in any room.
