My Beautiful Harbinger of Spring

The last week of March, our pretty Star Magnolia began to bloom, like it does at this time every year. It hung tough through two snows so far, and has more blooms than ever. Like the other hardy Magnolias that will grow here in Colorado, the flowers come out long before the leaves. In fact the buds are set in the fall.

We planted it early on when we moved into this house fifteen years ago. I love it.
