Photo: Pink Magnolia Tree Blossoms in DC

Pink Magnolia Blossoms Photo

I happened to be visiting Washington D.C. at the same time as the National Cherry Blossom Festival last weekend. Although I couldn't make it to the Tidal Basin to dance under the pink Yoshino cherry trees, I did swoon over several other beautiful blossoms. The tulip-shaped petals on the pretty pink magnolia tree above were my favorite. And if you follow me on Instagram, you already know how tickled pink I was to spy a giant Care Bear balloon lining up for the parade.

    I grew up outside of Washington, so I did get to see the cherry blossoms a few times.

  14. Lovely picture. For many years I never realized that those pink blossomed trees were magnoilas, where I lived in So. Calif people simply called them Tulip trees. But as the famous bard, Shakespeare, wrote " "What's in a name? That which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet."
