mid-winter wonder

Mid-winter is when my favourite treasure bursts into spectacular bloom.
 A Vulcan Magnolia tree. 
Its rich magenta flowers are as big as your open hand. 
The branches are completely bare except for the furry buds and flowers. 
They sure stand out!
 One day there are only bare branches and plump furry buds with a hint of colour. 
Then I wake up and see the glorious surprise of the magnificent flowers.
