A Few Things About Cucumber Magnolia


Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is Titled “Magnolia After Rain” & is available  for purchase by following the instructions at the bottom of the page.

The warm humid air after the rain carries a sweetness throughout the forest. When I step outside and look up the mountain from my deck the large showy flowers look like white birds perched on limbs all over the woods. I take  deep breath & enjoy the fresh scent as it mixes with the smell of the rain soaked moss. 

They are called cucumber trees because the unripe fruit resembles a cucumber. However by the end of summer they turn a deep red

The large leaves are good shelter during Spring showers. as a kid playing in the woods I would often seek out a stand of the trees when a shower would pop up. Or on hot days as shelter from the sun.

This tree does get lumber sized & the wood is beautiful.

The tree is also one of the first to put on leaves in the Spring which is always a welcomed sight .

The Cucumber Magnolia is one of my favorite trees in the Appalachian Mountains.
