Magnolias are starting to bloom all around town. It was a bit breezy today so the petals were really dancing. It made for tough picture taking but a managed a few good ones.
I just love the blooms of the maple. So cute!
This is a young Edgeworthia or Oriental Paper Bush. I don't think they grow in colder climates than zone 7. They get to be a large shrub and are covered with these blooms. You should be able to find some good shots on google of mature specimens.
This Daphne's fragrance is unbelievable!
