Magnolia Stellata

This is in full flower at the moment. It always reminds me of my Mum - and I just completed the last white on white crazy quilt square - the one of her last night. As a child I remember having to shift the magnolia stellata each time we moved house as it was one of her "special shrubs so each Spring when it flowers it is a reminder of those childhood memories. It is quite a straggly bush but I could never take it out because of those memories.
