Photo of the Day: Mystérieuse



This is my new favorite flower, not to take the place of my love of peonies and chrysanthemums of course. It's just so vibrant and lush. The blossoms are HUGE and the trees end up looking like they're covered in big, pink butterflies. But I have no idea what it is.

Anyone want to enlighten me?

Here's a different angle:

It looks like a saucer magnolia or tulip tree. They are gorgeous.

Yea, I think this is a saucer magnolia. There are different kinds of magnolias all over town. Some are deciduous like these and some are evergreen with dark green glossy leaves. But they all have ridiculous flowers.

Great picture!!

We had a similar tree in our backyard growing up, but the bark was white.

I LOVE those flowers - they're so velvety.
