Stunning Magnolia in Bloom


We bought this house in part because of the beautiful magnolia tree in the front yard. Last year due to some weird weather, the blooms froze on the tree before opening. But this year we've been blessed with a cool spring that has produced a magnificent show....

    Heather are you in Elora, It looks exactly like a house with the Magnolia in front here. Either way it is gorgeous, and I am so jealous :) wish I had one in my yard.

  • Hi Valerie Scott = no, we're in Tillsonburg which is just south of Woodstock about 20 km. Wish I could take credit for the beauty of the house and the magnolia but they were both this gorgeous when we moved here 2 years ago.
