Dedicated to my Mother
When I came across this incredibly grand and old magnolia tree, I had to take a picture of it for my mother. I remember the stories about the tree we had in our front yard when I was born which died during an especially harsh winter.
This is a testiment as to how much these trees can soar in Padua. It may be as much as 200 years that climb that sturdy trunk. The owner only knows that it was already very tall when he moved to this property in 1963.
