When we moved into this house in May, I bought a Japanese Magnolia tree from the student club. I really like Japanese Magnolias and it will provide a smaller tree structure to my yard. Over the summer, I thought I had killed it. I didn't water it enough during the establishment period and it started turning yellow and dropping its leaves. After a little more TLC, it started looking better. Now, it's blooming! I'm really excited since this was the first landscape plant we put in this yard and since I almost killed it. The bloom is very pretty, but kinda low on the tree so it's a little hard to see (it's a small tree).
