When I was about 9 or 10, a friend's parents moved into his late grandfather's Mississippi mansion, with the front yard filled with magnolia trees that had limbs all the way to the ground, with bare ground and roots beneath them. I spent many afternoons after school climbing on those limbs.

The other things I remember about that house are that one of the outbuildings out back still contained the charging equipment for his grandmother's electric car, and that his cook could make a molasses pie that was out of this world! :-)

My magnolias would have limbs down to the ground except Tom keeps trimming
them so he can mow under the trees!  I love my magnolias.

Thanks, Tina.  But, higher, much more difficult to shoot from above, than
your nice shot.

Tina's post reminded me that I had been meaning to check out my neighbor's
Magnolia tree for a couple of weeks.  I found the blooms were nowhere
nearly as accessible as her example.  Here are the best of my efforts.
