shari, Yes, indeed. And it is so much more stunning in person.
Ah the magnificent Tulip Magnolia...some day soon.xo Jane.
ooops, signed in with an alias! Still loving the magnolia!
Oh, I so love Magnolias. We don't have many up here, but just south of us in Victoria there are so many beautiful ones. A true beacon of spring!
japanese magnolias...so gorgeous!!
Yep, I understand... spring has me speechless. An amazing season of visual gifts.
Just plain gorgeous.
Holy cow! That is tops.
Now that's a tree!Love Magnolias.
as it should. It demands a little reverence.
I have been trying to figure out what kind of tree that was for like 2 years. Glad some of these comments have finally answered my question. Glad actually isn't strong enough of a word.
Oh, cherry blossom, my favorite herald of spring, I adore you so. What a lovely balm for the eyes those flowers are, too.
There is a tree in Larkspur that I go to see every spring. The biggest, most perfectly shaped Magnolia I've ever seen. This year I went and they had build a huge ugly hedge around it -- about eight feet high. I was sad. Your beautiful photo makes me feel a little bit better.
It fills my heart with hope. Spring!
such a pretty colour. Nature can be so astounding.
Ah! I have a similar tree in my front yard, which welcomed me home with a full blush of rosy blooms.(and such fragrance released into the evening!)
nancy, Your own yard? I'm very jealous. Enjoy.
wow. bloom !
So heavy with blossom but still it stands tall and proud. What a splendid sight.
I can see why! There is one in town which has somehow been able to survive our climate...a few blocks from my house. Every spring I make a point to visit it...spring is not here yet but your picture will help the wait.
