Spring Has Sprung

Today is the official first day of spring, and it did not disappoint! It was a whopping 73 degrees today in New York City.  The weather is outstanding, and yet, very scary.  I hope this is not a peek into a very hot NY summer. On my way home from work today, I stopped dead in my tracks from the scent of this beauty!  The Magnolia tree in my neighbor's yard is in FULL bloom!  One month ahead of schedule!
How gorgeous are these?  And the scent is intoxicating!  I absolutely love the smell of magnolias!  And they are so pretty!
This tree was also full of blooms.  I don't know what type of tree this is, but it had lots of white flowers.  Ahh, spring is in the air!


  1. Oh, how lovely! I miss NYC...
    Happy Spring!

  2. Aha, so it's not just our Spring that's totally out of whack (although it is still quite cold here on odd days)!

  3. I'm hoping we don't get a late frost that knocks all the fruit off.

  4. Thank you for sharing the gorgeous magnolia tree. They are beautiful but won't survive here.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
