Magnolia

(photograph copyright 2009 by Dan Routh)

My Great-Grandmother’s 100 year old magnolia tree is in full bloom now in our front yard in Grays Chapel, North Carolina. We are fortunate to have several original plants and trees from when our house was built around 1880. This particular magnolia is huge and measures about 60 feet in height. It is the perfect climbing tree as 3 generations of kids will attest. Now it’s the perfect spot for our chickens to scratch for bugs.
