The Magnolias of Filoli in 2017

I’ve visited Filoli in Woodside, California many times. The magnolias flower in early spring, but the timing of a visit must be just right in order to see the magnolias at their finest. This year, I seemed to have timed my visit just right to see Magnolia cambellii, M. cylindrica, M. denudata, and M. kobus in bloom. The final photo in this set is of Michelia doltsopa. The michelias are closely related to the magnolias.
