Magnolia blooms in Toronto

Magnolia stellata, M. x soulangeana, M. x loebner "Leonard Messel" blooms


It's safe to say that spring is finally here in Toronto. I'm busy gardening for a living but try to remember to bring my camera along to take pictures when I can.

Magnolias look incredible for about two weeks of the year, if the buds can escape a late freeze and if the trees can withstand magnolia scale, etc. They're shrubs or trees better appreciated in someone else's garden and not mine!

Still, they are pretty things this time of the year.
