SkyWatch Friday: Colorful sky


I'm not sure why but the Japanese Magnolia (Tulip Tree) always blooms long before the large magnolia with white blossoms.

Some years the early blooms get zapped by cold weather but so far so good this year.

And why is their blooming season so short? I love this time of year when they are in full bloom. I would drive around the neighborhood and watch the front yards to gawk at them. I have one that hasn't really made progress. It gives me a few blooms every year, but that's all. I wonder what I am doing wrong that it's not growing at all.

I've noticed that about the ones around here as well. They haven't started blooming, but I can see some small buds and it won't be much longer. They're such gorgeous trees/flowers! I do so look forward to their blooming every spring! Marvelous captures as always! Have a wonderful weekend, Carver!

The blossoms are so beautiful. My grandparents had a tulip tree when I was young, and I always loved it.

Mother Nature has certainly been kind to these beautiful tulip trees. The colors are so lovely. I saw my first crocuses today so spring is coming to Virginia.

loving your early blossoms...wow!!!

Arija said...

These are just splendid!!

You mentioned Magnolia grandiflora, it is the same genus as the Chinese Magnolia, the difference is that grandiflora is native to America and is an evergreen whereas the Magnolias originating in China are deciduous.

Whatever the reason, they are beautiful. The blue sky is a perfect background for the pink blossoms.

A stunning set of shots with the pale pink against that rich blue! We will have our buds coming out here soon, if spring stays on schedule...:)
