Magnolia (Manglietia) fordiana is loaded with buds

This plant has been here more than 20 years and it's more than 20 feet (6 m.) tall. . I don't remember seeing flowers on it last year, but I'm old and could have missed them or forgotten. Probably not. I'll watch these buds through the winter. We have another species, M. yuyianensis, farther down China Valley; those plants are also budded.
