Tulip Tree

The warmer weather is bring more and more blooms out of their winter storage. This is a lovely little Tulip tree. It is a type of magnolia I think but am no expert. I just know it is very pretty.

As with Micki, your tulip tree is very early, the one that flowers in the grounds where I live is only just showing green buds. I think they are one of the magnificent flowering shrubs of all. Although, the rhododendrums in May time give a magnificent display.

A lovely picture that, as they say in England, warms the cockles of your heart!!!!

The tulip month is May in Ottawa, with the huge tulip festival.

(The food posts are coming this week! I didn't forget :-))
