If you spend very much time at all in Mississippi during late summer you’ll notice these large hardwood trees with big dark green, shinny leaves and white blooms the size of a dinner plate. This is the official state flower of Mississippi. Mostly, around older home places, along many roadways, and city parks you’ll see these large white soft petal flowers galore. Obviously, they draw a myriad of pollinators to their rich pollen centers. As I captured this magnolia bloom it brought back many memories of family and friends around the beautiful state of Mississippi. I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions of this photo.
