More Magnificent Magnolias
Here are more images of the Magnolia flower for your enjoyment.
I was in Salem, OR this past week and decided to walk around Willamette University to see what kind of flowers might be growing there right now. I found many! But here is my Magnolia collection that I wanted to share, on the tails of yesterday’s “Magnificent Magnolia Flower” post. The first image I believe is of the Yellow Bird variety of Magnolia. Please correct me if I’m wrong, I’m still learning my flowers.
There are fossilized specimens of plants relating to the Magnolia dating back 95 million years ago. The tree and flower pre-date bee’s. Originally having developed pollination to be carried out by beetles crawling on it’s tree. There are over 250 different species within the Magnolia family. Different varieties of the Magnolia tree can be found native throughout this lovely Earth.
That’s it for this week! I hope you like my Magnolia Flower presentation? There may be more to come in the following weeks, depends on what else I find on my travels around this great state. Please share this post with your friends and family. I’d really like to see more followers join this blog. So, become a follower today.
