Whatever their name tulip magnolias signal spring is near…

spring flowers 201
The first sign of spring in my yard is my tulip magnolia. The blooms are a deep purplish pink and remind me of origami. After searching the name of this tree that sits at the corner of my house, I discovered it was called “Little Girl Magnolia” and they come in a variety of colors and names – Betty, Ann, Susan, and Jane. Whatever its name I look forward to my tulip magnolia blooming every year because I know that spring is just around the corner bringing warmer temperatures and longer days!
