“Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.”
Happy Thursday lovely friends and as always, I am so glad you are here. If my memory serves me well, I am doing something I haven’t done before…spotlighting a single bloom on a blog post. Long-time readers know that we have lived in our home for forty years. It was built when we were very young…our house was situated in the middle of pasture land, so there wasn’t an over abundance of trees. Three large and very old oak trees along with a cedar tree fronted our home and that was about all. The very first tree we planted was a Southern magnolia. At this age, I wasn’t aware of what I wanted in a landscape, but I knew I wanted a magnificent magnolia in my front yard.
This is our forty year old Magnolia Grandiflora commonly known as a Southern magnolia. It is native to the Southeastern United States and it dots the lawns and landscapes all over our northeast Alabama town!
