"Cow-cumber" Trees are blooming

                                                                       This one drapes over my back porch.

Magnolia Macrophylla: Is a deciduous magnolia native to the southeastern United States and eastern Mexico, This species boasts the largest simple leaf and single flower of any native species in North America. Click here for more.


  1. Wish we had them here up North.

  2. How you got a Magnolia to grow up there I'll never know.
    They are ubiquitous down here. In my boyhood lawnmowing days I referred to them as "hangernade" trees.
    The seed pods they dropped spit out of a push mower would take your leg off.
