    1. Rob-bear, it reminds me of home too. My folks had a couple of these ornamental trees in the yard and I dearly loved the spring because they were always in full bloom. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments!

    1. Onery 39's Wife, I took this picture at the playground at my son's school. I love these trees too and wish my yard was full of them. When I was growing up my folks had several of these flowering trees including a magnolia that grew outside my bedroom window. I loved them, their beauty, and their fragrance. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments!
