spring magnolia flowers in boston on commonwealth avemagnolia in boston on commonwealth ave

The magnolias in Boston are out in abundance. These beautiful trees are all over this pretty city and especially on Commonwealth Avenue. I can not think of a more perfect bloom. I once read that in ancient China, magnolias were thought to be the perfect symbols of beauty and gentleness. White magnolias are said to represent purity and dignity. I find it fascinating that these trees can live for a full century. As I stand here gazing at the ones on Commonwealth – mere babies in the grand scheme of things – I am sending up a little prayer that they will continue to grace Boston with their beauty and fragrance for that full hundred years.
