Wordless Wednesday - The Stick

A little over 2 years ago I sent for a free offer from the newspaper for a bare root magnolia tree. I don't know quite what I expected, but when it arrived it was a straight stick with roots on one end.
I duly planted it and throughout the year nothing really happened except it got a bit nobbley.
Last year the nobbles grew a bit bigger and turned into 6 flowers.
This year I should get 12 flowers.
In 50 years time my stick may have become a tree!

I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the Wordless Wednesday blog hop.


  1. Aww, it finally is getting they, very pretty!

  2. How pretty! Yes, it will be magnificent one day.

  3. It looks great. We have photos of our yard from 12 yrs ago when we bought the house and it is amazing how the trees and plants have grown. Yours will grow too.

  4. It will be breathtakingly beautiful someday. Well done.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  5. oh my it will be a gorgeous tree! Is it planted yet in the ground? Have a lovely day,stay safe and healthy!

  6. I tried that one time and it's still a twig and it was three yrs ago that I plant it. :( Good luck with yours.

  7. Mom loves magnolia blossoms. Yours are very pretty, and we sure it grows faster than you are expecting:)

  8. They're beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Stay well, Deborah

  9. It has beautiful flowers ! My neighbor has a big one it's gorgeous when it blooms unfortunately it doesn't last very long !

  10. It may just be a stick for now but what a beautiful bunch of flowers on that stick! It seems to be quite happy living with you - and it will reward you by growing and continuing to flower through the years.

    Hugs, Pam

  11. Magnolia's are a delight; candelabra-like flowers and a nice perfume up close. Once it's a bit bigger it will be a really splendid thing to see in spring.
