It’s not yet spring, but Tulip Magnolias started blooming throughout the greater Charleston, SC area at the end of January.
We had a few days in the high 70s (around 25 C) last week and the blossoms popped out like crazy.
The daytime temperatures have since dropped back to more seasonable mid 60s (15C). I’d like to think we’re past having an overnight freeze, which would turn these beauties into black disappointment. However, two years ago we had a hard frost at the end of March so I won’t hold my breath.

What a beautiful sight! Lovely photos.
Thanks, Belinda, glad you enjoyed the blooms!
So not just the odd one but lots of them.. wow!
Yes, and lots of buds still to bloom—this seems to be their year. One of my neighbors has a very small tree that looks dead and even that has put out a couple of blooms.
