Spring 'Snowflakes'

A really quick walk around the yard this morning in my pj's, I found tons of flowers that weren't here last week. I've been able to sit on the porch and look out into the front yard while swinging on the swing. Nothing better than swinging and smelling the flowers while the sun warms your skin. Mark tells me that this is some sort of magnolia tree. I don't know what it is...all I know is that by this time next week all the blooms will be gone. When I look out of the bedroom window, the blooms look like snowflakes suspended in the air.


  1. Wow, I've never seen a magnolia with flowers like that. It must be an Ohio magnolia! Really beautiful.

  2. Jan, I looked up the full name of the magnolia...morning star magnolia. Name...Leonard Messel...Magnolia x loebneri

    Are you impressed?
