My magnolia tree in the backyard is loaded down with our state flower. Looking forward to taking more pictures. I do have another magnolia tree but has not put out any blooms yet.
Took this picture of a helicopter as it flew over my head while taking pictures!
Skies are clearing now since we had severe storms to come through last night with power outages and down trees. Looks like my only magnolia blossom made it in good shape!
