I’ve posted a special for you on my blog entitled ‘Horseradish for Fr Z.’ containing two horseradish recipes and the offer of a couple of gifts. Please have a look. (Thoughts from an Oasis in French Catholicism)
Thanks for the photo of Michael Davies’ grave. I wondered where it was. Is it the foreshortening of the camera that indicates he was a great man in more senses than one?!
All good wishes for tonight’s Buckinham Assembly,
The tree is Magnolia grandiflora. This in an evergreen species that grows into a large tree in warmer climates. In the UK it is usually grown against a south-west wall for protection.
Definitely a magnolia. We had one in the yard of my childhood home in Overstreet, FL.
Magnolia trees! I had no idea they could grow in the UK, but I am sure that Britain is better for their presence. The tree is common and well loved in the southern United States, where it will grow to a truly enormous size. The bark, and especially the flowers, have a sweet aroma. The numerous low-growing branches make it one of the best trees for climbing.
Ah, Magnolias. My House is surrounded by them, and here in the south they get large enough that they make great climbing trees for the young-ones. I’ve scaled many of them in my day.
There are many along the street where I live. My mom told me that the huge white things aren’t actually flowers, but they attract bees and butterflies and other pollinators to the actual flower.
They’re beautiful. I didn’t know they grew in the UK.
It was certainly a wonderful afternoon. Have you been encountered any more tarts lately?
It’s a magnolia. I never would’ve guessed that they could
grow in such a cold place.
Definitely Magnolia Grandiflora…. have several in my yard. It is unusual that it would be found in a cooler climate. Excellent aroma!
You know, people always bash English food, but what I wouldn’t give for a proper Yorkshire pudding.
Dear Fr. Zuhlsdorf,
Should such news on food and ‘de luxe’ restaurants appear in a Catholic blog like this, when millions of people suffer because of hunger? Respectfully, I think this does not help to promote the Catholic tradition nor the Evangelization.

Thank God for Michael Davies. And I say that having not yet read his liturgical works (yet), but because of his great little biography on one of my patrons St. John Fisher. When I can’t find even the simplest patron saint medal of him anywhere, it’s nice to have any reading material on him whatsoever.

Angelus Press just released Pope John’s Council.
Neumann Press has Cranmer’s Godly Order.
These are great books that have made Michael Davies my new “Scott Hahn.” He also has great talks at this website for free download:
Dear Father Z,
Don’t mind Crux Australis – most of us in the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit do have a sense of humour(strict sense) and are well -adjusted. It is great to know that you are being well received .
Way late in responding so you probably won’t see this, but…
I already have CRANMER’S GODLY ORDER, I just haven’t gotten that far in my stack(s) of books to read.
I’ve seen POPE JOHN’S COUNCIL available at Angelus Press, but I’m wary of patronizing an SSPX outfit.
