A massive magnolia blooming in all its glory has become the talking point of the tiny village of St Mawgan, near Newquay.
The beautiful tree, in the grounds of the Falcon Inn, is believed to be more than 90-years-old and swamps the 16th century pub.
Landlady Sarah Lawrence said: “Everyone in the village looks forward to it flowering all year – and now it’s looking stunning.
“Visitors can’t believe it when they see it. Not only does it dwarf the pub, but the blooms are pristine.”
Sarah thinks the magnolia, in the pub’s beer garden, could be one of the largest in Cornwall.
“The trunk is just enormous and it spreads high and wide. I’d love to know if there are any bigger.
“It’s such a special feature of our garden. With the sunny weather we’ve been experiencing lately, we’ve really seen the best of it.”
