Bring on Spring! A pretty picture....
I've been obsessed with tulip trees (also called Japanese magnolias or saucer magnolias) since I was a little girl and saw them on a trip to Marshall, Texas, where my dad grew up.
I noticed this glorious one set off by a bright blue house driving through Nacogdoches and have wanted to photograph it for years. I finally did today, and though it's not quite in full bloom yet, it makes me long for springtime and the lush East Texas landscape. My hubby is buying us one for our new yard as a Valentine's present. :) So sweet.
