A few steps away from my office I can find this Magnolia tree.
They are not only impressive beautiful, when their sweet fragrance fills the air, you know you are at start of spring. They are magnificent flowering plants featuring blossoms in various colors. There are about 80 different species.
Magnolia trees are grown for the beautiful flowers, but their flower peak time is short - at least in our climate - in some years a few days only.
So, this tree grows nearby, but in some years I miss to enjoy its splendor.
