  2. Oh, trees blooming in early spring is one of my very favorite pleasures- Our Magnolia, the likely same cultivar as yours, (though I didn’t plant them and don’t know the cultivar for sure) is still in bud- none yet opened. I love the fruit trees opening, and then the Azaleas…

      I cannot tell a lie (although the cherry tree is not involved). The other trees are ones in my neighborhood, captured on an afternoons stroll.

      • That is too funny, John 😉 “Borrowed landscape?” We stopped to pick up a traveling neighbor’s papers for her, and I stole the Magnolia pics. The tree beside her driveway was just too tantalizing to pass by without a photo-capture 😉 Neighborhood walks always bring their benefits 😉

    They are very cheering. I have a cherry that is just about the start flowering.
    What is the plant in your header – I am guessing a Mahonia but am not sure

      Thank you, Helen. You are correct. It is a mahonia…as I remember the photo was taken in January about 15+ years ago in my former garden. I may have to do a post about it; several people have asked about it.
