yesterday’s image was a tulip tree on our street from last year. these are a glimpse of the dogwoods (and azalea’s) blooming right now along our street.

todays temperatures hit 88 degrees fahrenheit

Mere colour, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.

    Sherri, I am somewhat puzzled that you refer to the tree in yesterday’s image as “Tulip Tree”. Up To now I thought that Tulip Trees are those described in the Liriodenron Tulipifera on Wikipedia, with their characteristic leaves, but no pink blossoms. I would have identified yesterday’s tree as Magnolia through color and stature. But of course there are wide regional differences in plant names.

    (BTW, the chosen font for the comment Form renders all entries in capitals on firefox, so I hope my spelling is not too awful)

      Markus, my photo is of a tree commonly called an American Tulip Tree. It has been trimmed by professionals and is quite old. Just a guess would place it late 1800’s, which is old in this area. The Magnolia trees have waxy leaves of very large and dark green. The vast majority of people permit those to grow with their branches all the way down to the ground.

      As for the caps, it’s built into the site that the text appears as caps while typing and then changes to normal after publishing. So, if you want to capitalize the first letter of every sentence, you do it just as you normally would and it registers properly on publish.

    I love seeing the trees in bloom with their elegance and color. Today the cherry tree in my yard is blooming and it is gorgeous. Beautiful image here.

    Looks very dry judging by the grass. I always enjoy seeing the Masters from Augusta as much for the AZALEAS as the golf

      actually, the grass is just beginning to turn green from the brown that it takes on all winter in laying dormant

    so beautiful. It’s so un-seasonably cold up here that we’re a little behind with our spring blooms. Your image is inviting me in.
