Top picture is the magnolia shrubs. They're not quite there yet, but they are budding. The next picture down is the magnolia trees. The frost got quite a few of the blossoms, but what is there is lovely. I'm told that if you've seen the magnolias in the South you don't really think our trees are worthy of being called magnolias. You can call them whatever you want--I'm just glad to see the spring!
The bottom picture is of the flowers, the cherry blossoms, and the temple. Just go ahead and try!
