Spring is here -- the Japanese Magnolia told me so !

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty RED STICK PARTNERS

My daughter took this photo in our backyard this morning.  In a comment earlier this week I told Richard Weisser that we always feel like Spring is here when the Japanese magnolia blooms (actually I think this is a Star magnolia).  She took this picture with her i-phone and a downloaded app called "shake-it".  Don't ask me ... I know nothing!  Hope you all are having a great weekend and feeling very springlike in your neck of the woods.

I don't think it has enough petals, and the petals are not skinny enough, to be a star magnolia. To me it does look like a Japanese magnolia (Magnolia x soulangiana), also called a saucer magnolia or a tulip tree.

Thanks, Russel.  I always enjoy knowing the names of my plants and trees and birds.  Have a great weekend.

Thanks, Ann.  I'll tell her you said so.  I printed a larger copy of the photo and framed it ... turned out nice.
