MagnoliaCouldn’t let a rainy day stop me from getting my photography fix, so went to a local garden during my lunch break and found some amazing magnolia trees in full bloom, covered in raindrops

Magnolia is a large genus of about 210 flowering plant species in the subfamily Magnolioideae.

Fossilised specimens of M. acuminata have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the Magnoliaceae date to 95 million years ago (just out of interest – dinosaurs lived between 230 & 65 million years ago).
