In Montreuil neighbourhood. I can't get the song out of my head!

A Montreuil. Je n'arrive pas à me sortir la chanson "sugar magnolia" de la tête...

I love it when these trees bloom here...couldn't play the song, blocked for copyright reasons, so it said!

Jack said...

Magnolias in bloom are marvelous. In my area, the blooms are very short-lived.

Randy said...

That is a beautiful tree.

Virginia said...

I think we do call them Japanese Magnolias or maybe tulip trees here. Whatever, you have captured them beautifully.

Halcyon said...

This is my favorite kind of magnolia! I really like your first shot with the iron fence and the fleur-de-lis.

PS: Do you know what the April theme day is?

Oh no, now I can't get the song out of MY head, thanks Ciel, that'll teach me for pressing music links haha! Both beautiful images, but the first is so gorgeous with the bonus of the wrought iron gate. I bet the smell was divine.

Beautiful flowers.

And that's one of my favorite Grateful Dead songs. Like the above comment says, it'll stay in my head all day, which is a thing to be grateful for.

Wonderful to see a Magnolia of any shade in flower..

To answer your question about a ploughmans lunch... the answer is yes and Cheshire has some wonderful country pubs all serving them..

You have given me an idea...I must share some images of my locals... thatched roofs and all..

Hugs Drew xx

And now that song is stuck in my head as well. Wonderful magnolia's!

Lowell said...

I'm pretty sure we had one of these in our backyard at the old house in Ocala...they are gorgeous flowers but as I recall they don't last very long.

Both of these are great shots, but I'm a bit partial to the 2nd because of the setting - the house, the other tree, and the fence.

joo said...

It's awesome, Ciel! Not even single flower here yet:(

Loree said...

Can I say 'gorgeous'?

SRQ said...

Beautiful!

JM said...

Sadly Japanese Magnolia has already lost most of its blooms here.

Francisca said...

I saw a tree like this last year in Bucharest, but have zero chance of spotting one here in this scrap town in southern China! So I'll just enjoy this eye candy you've shared. Don't remember this song from Grateful Dead... hmmm... Hope you are well! I've found a program to bust through China's firewall, but it makes possting and blog hopping real sloooow... so I'm limited by that and time constraints.

Love spring and all its blooms.
