Budding Magnolia

A pink Magnolia flower bud peeks through its furry casing in time to greet a baby blue sky.

I had wondered whether this tree was blossoming early and so looked back at the many Magnolia images I have posted over the years. Although most of those I’ve seen and photographed have been in flower from mid-March through to May, I did photograph a one in a different location a few years ago very early March.
