4.30 Susan magnolia

Two years ago, I planted a Susan magnolia in the back yard. Last year it gave us three blooms, at widely scattered times (bloom, wait a month, bloom, wait a month, bloom). This year...Wow. What a difference a year makes.
The hot weather recently has encouraged it to think summer is here. We won't be past the average frost date for another week or so.
I just love the way the blooms look. Eventually, it should be tall enough it will shade the office window in the summer time, which is good as the window is full west and that room heats up like no one's business.
