P Is For Pink




The Pink Magnolias are blooming everywhere I look this week!
They are such a beautiful spring time icon in my little village
and surrounding towns!  We called them tulip trees when I
was young.  The flowers really do look like tulips blooming
on a tree, don't they?

I'm all linked up with the A to Z Challenge!

    it tells me Spring has won the fight!
    And at the end of my tunnel
    I can see the light!

  9. Springtime in the South is what I miss ; cherry blossoms, magnolias, tulip trees, redbuds, azaleas, camellias all of which thrive in the warm early Spring. N.H. doesn't warm up til May.

  22. Beautiful, you are so far ahead of us, here daffodils are just about to bloom. It has ben a really cold spring so far. That pink bloom reminds me of the my old white house on the hill, I had a Japanese cherry tree right in front of my east bound windows.;)
