Spring has sprung

Thursday, February 7, 2008

The Magnolia soulangiana in my yard started blooming last week. It's typically the first thing in my yard to flower, followed by the camellias and azaleas. I'll see if I can't get some shots of them soon. I've also seen a few redbuds beginning to open around town. Apparently, spring is here.

Okay, I captured a few more shots before work this morning. The first four were taken in my yard. Well, the white camellias were in the kitchen, but they were growing in the yard before I snipped them and made the into a bouquet. The picture of the redbud tree is from a yard I drive by on my way to work.

I love pink magnolias. They are stunning bloomers because they flower before their leaves bud. Its just a puff ball of pink!

Me too! In fact, this year was the most stunning display yet for my pink magnolia. I think it's because the tree gets more sunshine now since the 2004 hurricanes opened up the surrounding tree canopy.
