Christmas eve buds

DAY 263 (24 DECEMBER) Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) (Greater London)

A beautiful day to collect my mother for Christmas. And so good to see magnolia buds in her neighbour’s garden, against the cloudless suburban sky.

Named after French botanist Pierre Magnol, the magnolia is apparently even more ancient than bees (whenever they came in).
