It’s only in early spring that Magnolia Soulangeana blooms in profusion. But when delicate pink blossoms burst forth, that dense, full-on blooming is something not to be missed.
As the first pink starts to show, I brave early morning chill to note blooms in their infancy. Sweater weather in East Tennessee with a sweet reward.
I stand underneath a mature tree in our neighborhood hoping to get a sidewise glimpse of lower branch blooms. But mostly, I look upward, noting how barely-there morning light brightens the inner whites ensconced by outer pinks.
It’s a treat we give ourselves, those of us lucky enough to be near a Magnolia Soulangeana (that we locally call a Saucer Magnolia) in early spring. A true reward for getting out and looking up.
