Utter happiness! A Eurasian Blackcap is singing to his heart’s content on a branch of the magnolia. I have to capture this. But as soon as I start sketching I realize I don’t even know what variety magnolia I have been looking at in our garden for the past fifteen years…
I’m so happy I decided a few years ago to finally get a computer – I can look this up! And so I found out this is a Magnolia liliiflora ‘nigra,’ a Purple lily magnolia. It blooms in late spring and is a real beauty.
