Magnolias and soft pink prunus blossoms

Posted this in Michele the Celebrant by mistake, then thought you may enjoy seeing the loveliness of the Heart Garden in mid-Spring. My new garden blog is Come to My Heart Garden. You're so welcome to visit.


Greetings from Canberra on a sunny Spring day


September in my part of the world is very literally 'change of seasons'. All in one day we can have gentle rain, then sunshine and stillness, then a wild wind from the west, coming off the last patches of snow on the Brindabella mountains. 


Magnolia 'Star Wars'

This is the spectacular magnolia 'Star Wars'. She doesn't have many flowers. Her focus is grandeur. 
Magnolia soulangeana 'Star Wars'


Magnolia 'Alexandrina' with prunus 'Elvins in foreground.
Other magnolias are flowering now. This one is magnolia soulangeana 'Alexandrina.' She has masses of flowers and looks wonderful beside the prunus 'elvins', just coming into bloom.
Prunus 'elvins'












'Elvins' has masses of sword-shaped branches, totally packed with bloom. The blossoms come out pale pink then turn to richer, stronger pink as they age. Nice metaphor I think for all of us to become more colourful as life goes on (and more rich).
