We are having a most excellent Spring here in Lawrence. Colors are popping up everywhere you look. The gray skies that go along with the rainy days we expect in March, did not, in any way, diminish the splendidness of this display I spotted over the weekend.
I have no expertise in the identification of individual magnolia species. These look like either "Japanese Pink Saucer" or "Jane" to me. I do however, happen to know pretty when I see it, and these definitely fall into that cultivar.
Crocus - check. Forsythia - check. Redbuds starting - check. Magnolia trees - check and check! I think the flowering plums or cherries are next in the line up. Either way, I'll just be here waiting. Gratefully. Camera in tow.
