Day 123 – 03May2011 – Jennifer Robinson

Project 365 – Jennifer Robinson.

Day 123 – This magnolia, found in the Historic Gardens, is called ‘Jennifer Robinson’.

The name will sound familiar to many in my community as Robinson is a common surname locally, and there are Jennifers in these families. That is but a coincidence as breeder Captain Dick Steel in fact named this magnolia after the child of a family friend.

A wonderful magnolia, and bred in Nova Scotia! How cool is that?
