Magnolia blossom


There are a couple of magnificent magnolia trees in front of the large furniture store in Lake Sumter Landing. This is a blossom from one of them.

That is one thing I love about the warmer states (and I hate heat, so this is one of the ONLY things I like about the warmer states): Beautiful flowers. We get some in spring for about 3 weeks, and then they go away. Florida is fortunate enough to keep them basically year-round. These are gorgeous flowers.

Our blossoms have been gone for some time now. I like them cause they are so large.

My "Safe" boss and I love orchids more than magnolias and have many in our office.

Do you have orchids in Ocala or are we special in Eagan that way, like we are with "Weenie" softball teams?!:)

Jacob said...

@ Allison - Yes, we have orchids here in Ocala...in fact, we have an "orchid" tree in our back yard. Well, it looks like an orchid tree and has orchid blossoms.

But I don't unnerstand why y'all like orchids better than magnolias? And your magnolia trees are magnificent.

I think their are at least three special things about Eagan: Safe Leif, Allison and "Weenie" softball teams.

Have a great day! Tell your boss to get back to work now!
