I found a perfect magnolia blossom on the ground in front of my neighbor’s house, and decided to play with it like a child might play with a toy. First I drew all over on petal with colored pens, then I pried it open to reveal its fascinating center. I took pictures along the way.

These little sprouts were come up from the soil of the mother plant (lower right) so I removed the root ball from the pot and separated the babies and gave each its own pot. Now lets see if they survive on their own!
