Saga of a woman old enough to know better who lets her life be governed by the ridiculous hobby of breeding and showing dogs, musing on life, the twenty first century, Cameron and his mini-me, and the occasional sheep.

Spring magnolias Posted by Picasa
Love your posts, as always!! I was interested (although I'm far from a botanist - keeping potted plants alive is a major accomplishment for me) to see that the Scottish version of a "magnolia" is very different from what we call a magnolia in the Southern US - here it's a tree, with huge waxy white blossoms with a wonderful scent. I wonder if they're related - but I'm much too lazy to look it up! :-)
We actually have all sorts of magnolias and that one is Soulangeana Lennei and would be a big tree if I didn`t keep hacking it back so that I can see out of the window !
