Magnolia: Leonard Messel

Magnolia: Leonard Messel

The Magnolias in our garden are TRYING. Today it was cold with heavy winds-- I think all of them and the cherry are finished. I had spent the last couple days attempting to photograph them.

Still waiting for spring I guess.

Also having a difficult time keeping up with your wonderful images!

Sending a HUGE thank you to IrishKate for her US for the Yoshina Cherry!

I wonder if it is named after the Leonard Messell who was a keen botanist from Sussex?

An interesting flower, Jenn. It almost looks like it is made of paper.
Nicely photographed.
