I adore that smell, too.
It is hard to explain the fragrance but words like "magical" come to mind. The leaves are beautiful too and make great floral arrangements.
Hi There, On our recent trip to the beach in NC and then to FL for a wedding, we drove home through central GA... We saw some of the largest and most gorgeous Magnolia trees/blooms I have EVER seen... WOW---so beautiful... (We always travel on the back roads and not on the interstates, so we enjoy beautiful scenery.)Hugs,Betsy
That is how we like to travel also - back roads. Mine is a "miniature" magnolia tree but is still VERY tall. The previous owners planted it right next to the house so probably not the best location.
I wish I could smell its scent Jacqueline. Gorgeous photo!
I wish you could too Denise.
