Magnolias in Bloom

Google street view has come to London. Naturally I checked out our house - clearly visible of course although half of it is obscured by the foliage of a large tulip magnolia in our front garden.

The greenery was in full leaf when the google van drove by. A pity as the magnolia is now in full bloom.

The blooms come out in a matter of days. Unfortunately they fade and fall as fast. Still they are wonderful while they last.

Even if out house is part obscured I took a quick zoom round Fairfield Drive and there was my car in excellent detail I could even spot the small cuddly Angus the Coo on the parcel shelf :-)
