Japanese Magnolia Bud, Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest

I couldn't resist taking a photo of the Japanese Magnolia tree as it is flowering right now. This particular Japanese Magnolia sits right next to the main gate just before you enter Bernheim. Every year it blooms in early Spring with such beautiful pink and maroon flowers. It's simply gorgeous. I hope you have a Japanese Magnolia somewhere in your neighborhood. They just brighten everything around them. And they can get quite large too. I added a vignette to this image to enhance it. ENJOY!

  1. I hardly recognize any of the plants from that place. This is very pretty. The photo came out great.
