What is your favorite springtime flower? Leave a comment and share!
Each Los Angeles winter/spring these saucer magnolia trees throughout the neighborhood spring to life. They are striking for a number of reasons but I think the main reason is the fact the the flowers appear of bare limbs, before their leaves. For a week or so they are simply a tree of large colorful flowers attracting your eye at every turn.
I don’t have one myself, but I make sure to enjoy my neighbors trees for the short time they are in flower.
When I have a chance, I stop by our local Armstrong Garden store to see what is in-season, new, and perhaps, on sale.
Even when I don’t end up buying something, it is a good opportunity to take some photos to share here and on my garden blog, A Gardener’s Notebook.
