Those trees, those trees

I think I've established before that I'm a bit of a tree freak. I have fallen in love again. The Vanderbilt University campus had all sorts of lovely trees, but these magnolias were my favorite. This picture with my friend Nancy in it gives you an idea of just how big this tree is. Most of the blossoms were gone, but I was able to get a picture of one tenacious flower.

So lovely, aren't they? I love the wide, wandering shape of them, too.

I'm trying to fake that shape with a carefully and strictly pruned Osage orange in my yard here. But alas, no flowers like that will be had. Sigh.
