Nice shot above of a hybrid magnolia in full bloom.  I totally spaced out last night and forgot to post this blog.  Due to all the action at the gardens…I’ll keep it brief!  We had a lot of great people doing a lot of great things out in the gardens and at the Horticulture Center at a garden that continues to look better every day.  Great teamwork!
