The magnolia is gorgeous!
Oh wow...you have flowers blooming. It is still so cold and snowy here near Buffalo.....Your carolina dee looks so similar to my black-capped dee....beautiful colors.. thank you for the well wishes...I appreciate it very much..Michelle
I find it a tad confusing how the Magnolia is referred to as a tulip tree in N.America when the real tulip tree, Liliodendron tulipifera is a native of your country. Ah well, that is the confusing bit about common names.It is lovely to see spring literally springing in your world but hope for your sake that the summer is a mild and cooler than usual one.
Brilliant set of pictures!Léia
Wow! Love the magnolia! Here nature is only starting to wake up little by littleThanks for sharing your beautiful pics!***Have a nice day****
Magnolia and daffodils! We only have hints. Beautiful.
Nice to see you doing some research on both trees. The difference is in the genus, there one is Liliodendron and the other is Magnolia. Under normal circumstances one does not go further into their lineage. Just like Prunus comes under the general cover of Rosaeceae which covers not only plums but all stone fruits, roses, raspberries, strawberries and so many other plants..Thus it is Liliodendron tulipifera and Magnoliasoulangeana, stellata ro many more varieties.Does that help to clear up the confusion?
Spring is making an appearance here in TX, too!! It's glorious. I go back to the NE in a few weeks and get to see it all over again. Then on to Cape Breton for a 3rd viewing. I sure planned it right this year! Be sure to swing by if you have a minute and enter my give-away! ~karen
You have flowers already?! I am green with envy.
I can't believe you have things blooming! :)
