Magnolia Butterflies

Beautiful spring blooming tree with bright yellow to chartreuse flowers. Warm weather tends to make the petals blush a pink-brown color.

Main photo taken on April 19, 2015; second on April 29.

Right now, view of this 2-story tree is blocked by the flowering cherry or apple in front of it. Eventually, that tree will go to give a clear view of this wonder.
