Magnolia Tree Earth Center

February 19th, 2012

Thanks to the efforts of the magnificent Hattie Carthan, this magnolia tree (the taller one) is an official city landmark, the only tree that can claim such an honor.

    Hope you go back in spring and take a picture of the trees in bloom.

  2. Karen Too says:

    Further proof of what a difference can be made by one person.

    Having grown up in The South, and in New Orleans for the most part, seeing this tree here is a special treat.

    The magnolia grandiflora is the state flower of Louisiana.

    When they bloom, the air is filled with their unmistakable scent.
