Perhaps

I see at least one magnolia tree in my near future. One with pink fragrant blossoms and a beautiful grey-brown trunk. They are so beautiful. Here's an interesting fact about them, their blooms are pollinated not by bees or butterflies, but by beetles. Love.

I LOVE these trees also. Someday when I am a home owner I want one in my front yard. I did not know they are magnolias

I didn't either. All these years I've been admiring them in other people's yards, I've been mistakenly calling them Dogwoods.

absolutely beautiful! I didnt know that magnolias come in this color. I always thought they were always white! Have a great day, my lovely!
