Our world Tuesday - Spring is time for Magnolias



This week I'm taking part in Our World Tuesday thanks to this lovely blog. Pink and white Magnolias are just blooming away here. You don't normally find these up by the beach, they tend to grow more in better soil which is why I found them down the road from where we live outside the property of one of the local recycling businesses.  These ones are obviously deciduous and only start coming out of their slumber in late winter/early spring.

  1. Hi Amy . You made me Google morepork (Ninox novaeseelandiae), also called the Tasmanian spotted owl, as I'd never heard of it. Wouldn't mind seeing lots of those but I'm a few miles away. We do have magolias here thopugh, just like yours.

    1. hi Phil, we're nowhere near Tasmania as that's in Australia - we're in NZ but I love them just the same :-)

  2. Hi Amy, what beautiful photos, so clear and crisp (which sounds like the wrong word but it's the one that comes to mind). Do you mind if I ask what kind of camera you have? Our World Tuesday is a neat idea, and more lovely photos to enjoy. Thanks, Rachael

    1. hi Rachael, I have a very basic panasonic point and shoot which is a type of camera I hate, it's too basic for what I want, however I"m saving up for either a canon or a nikon DSLR.

    2. Thanks Amy. You know, I had a feeling you were going to say something like that, you obviously have a great eye and a real knack for photography.

  5. I love Magnolias! There was a massive pink one at our old home and since then I've always wanted to plant one here. But they grow so big and we don't have the space... :(
