I’ve mention that the Tulip Magnolias have put on a spectacular display this year unspoiled by frosty nights. They have been blooming for weeks and with no leaves yet on the trees the blossoms really stand out.
Next is another close up version of the flower from my post Tulip Magnolia Blossom, Very Large.
I don’t recall seeing this next type before with so many petals, almost like a daisy.
This one reminds me of a teacup, and another one that I wished I could have gotten up above for an interior shot.
This next one is prettier before it fully opens. I generally see this style more bedraggled looking.
Lastly, a yet unfurled blossom, showing off a gorgeous magenta exterior, a color I remember fondly from my childhood along with the Crayola 64 Box. I just looked Crayola up to ensure I remembered correctly and find you can now get a full box of 12 of the same color. Who knew?
