Spring Blossoms at the Parke House

More Japanese Magnolia!
This time, it is blooming at the Parke House, an 1850's Greek Revival home built by a Selma physician as a wedding present for his daughter.

Ok....I'm jealous! :) Those are gorgeous...and I love everything about your photo today.

Are you going to take photos at the pilgrimage this year? I wish I could come visit, as those are always so much fun. We will be in FL that week.

I do love those trees so much. Not a one of them is blooming yet in our town so it's very nice to see this photo today.

Are these blossoms from this year or last year? Just a few days ago you mentioned something about 4-6 weeks, right? Our magnolias are still fuzzy little buds.
