Magnificent Magnolias

Hidden away at the back of the council buildings were these two magnificent magnolias in glorious full flower, one taller specimen and one more compact. Just had to take a photo as I passed by on one of my trips to the gallery to view the quilt exhibition. A passer by said to me, “Aren’t they lovely. Do you know what the trees are called?”. Of course I did. I’m not really much of a gardener, but I can certainly recognise these magnificent magnolias, one of the loveliest winter flowering trees around.
