|Magnolia macrophylla flower|
Unfortunately, the tree does not produce many flowers in a year--this is the only flower on my tree right now. Also unfortunately, the flowers are usually so high up in the tree that you cannot get a good view of them. This flower, however, was placed fairly low down and so I was able to get this shot.
I'll have to admit that this is a striking flower when you can see it, even if it is white!
