Today's Flowers: Blooming ahead of schedule

The mild winter is continuing to show its face in the form of early blooms.
This has definitely been the earliest so far in terms of early spring flowers.
The first shot is of my neighbor's Japanese Magnolia which is called a Tulip Tree here although in other places a Tulip Tree is something else.
The other shots are of blooms in a corner shopping area which includes a garden store so they have a lot of plantings.
It will be interesting to see how many spring flowers survive when it gets cold again which is bound to happen this early.

It seems amazing to see Magnolia blooms this early. We have had a mild winter but not enough for anything to bloom yet.
