The Weekend in Black and White: First tree to flower

The Japanese Magnolia is always the first tree to flower in my neighborhood in Raleigh, NC. The downside is that these blooms usually have freeze damage. It's supposed to get down to 25 F (-3.88 C) tonight which is common here since our last freeze date is usually in mid to later April.

Oh, dear...I hope the buds survive. We are having really cold windy weather here in VA and are slated to get 3-6 inches of the white mess Sunday night...UGH! I am ready for REAL spring. This is a beautiful tree and capture. genie

Gorgeous photo! We have a Japanese magnolia in our front yard that blooms about July here in Eastern Canada - magnolia sieboldii or Oyama. Not as showy as the pink ones, but still very nice.

A truly welcome sight on this late-blooming spring!

Good in B&W!
You do them well for the theme.

Beautiful! Interesting to see spring in b&w. (Where I live, we've only just got UP to 25 degrees! I'm just a bit envious of your warm weather!)
