I think you will find it’s a Magnolia. I am so enjoying reading your blog. As an amateur, mostly self taught bookbinder, it’s fascinating to read about your course at West Dean. I am going to put you on my blogroll so I can read your blog regularly!
Hi Diane, I’m glad you found my blog(s), and happy you’re enjoying them! I started as a self-taught binder…and bookbinding has pretty much become my career pursuit. I’m always happy to meet bookbinding enthusiasts :)
I thought it was a Magnolia, but those “buds” are actually leaves coming out (no blossoms so far), and the leaves are a soft, light green with no shine to them. I think I’m going to update this post with more photos, now that the leaves are fully out.
