Yet another blossom blog for Mary and anyone else who's tired of winter. Even though it's still rainy here, things are starting to bloom.
I ran over to Oxford yesterday to take these photos. They have this deciduous magnolia tree in front of the Conservatory of Music. These gorgeous blossoms shade from white to magenta and hold up quite well to the wind and rain.
They look particularly beautiful and springy against this froth of white blossoms, which I think is a fruitless pear tree.
