Yellow Japanese Magnolias

Luck was on my side this Spring as I was able to photograph the beautiful hybrid Japanese Magnolia trees in bloom at Bernheim. It has been a month at least since I made a day trip up to Louisville. On the way back to Nashville, I stopped in at Bernheim just south of Louisville and there to greet me were gorgeous yellow and pink blooms.

If you have been a follower for long, you know how much I love Bernheim. And if you are new here, look back at some of the posts over the years. Bernheim is gorgeous in almost any season and I am positive there's an image in each one you will surely enjoy. At Bernheim the arboretum houses about ten hybrid Japanese Magnolias within close proximity of each other. Their beautiful blooms vary in color from blush to yellow to a deep pink.

As you walk among the trees, the scent of Magnolia blooms wafts through the air. It is so intoxicating that you really don't want to leave the arboretum. Today, I wanted to share two different perspectives of these beautiful flowers. I would love to know which one you like best. I hope to be back soon. I hope you promise to come back. ENJOY!

  1. Photo #2 is my pick, the green leaves, a bud waiting in the wings, and the branch off-setting the lemon, truly lovely.

  2. Geweldig mooi ,meestal zie ik de paarse maar de gele is wel heel mooi.

  3. Just gorgeous Carol. There is no need to ask why you keep returning to Bernheim.

    Both images have their merits but on balance I choose #2.

    Have a fabulous weekend.

  4. These are both beautiful photos Carol. I really like the soft yellow. The second one is my favourite.

  5. Oh Wow Carol these are soooooooooo beautiful. I've never seen yellow magnolias.
