This year's blossoming of the magnolia trees in Southern Germany was affected by two days of night frosts short prior the first magnolia buds opened.
This is what I've hoped to find...
...and this is what I found last week.
The closer I came to the magnolia blossoms, the more I was able to see that this spring season
there was a third colour next to pink and white: brown ;-((
Especially the magnolia trees at the climatically priviledged habitats were affected, because the April night frosts occured when the very first blossoms flourished.
The laggards among the magnolia blossoms were not affected that much...
...so all in all it really depended on the location and flourishing time of the magnolia trees
whether you were able to find a tree with ininjured flowers - or not.
But the cherry blossoms are great this season...
...but that's what I exhibit in my next post!
