Magnolias in Bloom

We are well into warmer weather now, and I'm very thankful!  But a few weeks ago as the warm weather made its first appearance, so did the Magnolias.  These beautiful flowering trees, one of my favorites, are the first sign of spring for a lot of people.  They bloom while other trees are just budding and before the cherry blossoms are in full swing.

There is a beautiful old magnolia tree in historic Wickford Village that I love to visit in springtime!  Here are some shots of that very same tree in the afternoon light.  And it's lucky I visited when I did because by the end of the week we had several days of strong winds which stripped a lot of petals.
