Wordless Wednesday #10 (Tuesday Edition): Cherry Tulip Magnolia Blossoms


"Cherry Tulip Magnolia Blossoms"
Washington, DC - April 1998 (Click to embiggen)

Since the hibiscus was such a smash hit I thought I'd give flowers another go. One of the more pleasant smelling things in DC is the cherry trees. Which these aren't... I found out courtesy of Kenju. (And she would know!) These are actually Tulip Magnolias. (Boy is my face red!)

I love cherry blossoms they give out one of the most romantic feels when strolling under them :)

Mona said...

Blossoms are always my favorite, any kind of blossom covered tee is like magic! It is like a vision of a fairyland. You stand under one & shake the bark & they shower over you!

Ah! How blissfully sensuous is that!

That's a beautiful shot.

kenju said...

The photo is beautiful, but that is a tulip magnolia tree, not cherry blossoms.

Mojo said...

Well I'll be dipped in sh*t. That's what the botanically challenged get for relying on memory rather than research.

Jenn in Holland said...

Oh, they are beautiful. I love the saturatation of color in this shot. It completely captivates!

Those are beautiful flowers. It must be rewarding to see them in bloom.

Thanks for visiting my other blog.

Claire said...

Love this :)

After wondering about Mid Atlantic and wondering why I would want to visit the middle of the ocean, I googled it.

It seems like you Americans cant actually decide what states are classed as Mid Atlantic.

I get all the comments on my blog via email, so yes I got yours and thank you for taking the time to leave such an interesting take on it. It makes sense, but its seeing sense that's the problem with me :)

carrie said...

that is one swell picture! I love those kind of flowers. And the colors.

And I'm gushing...but it's just really nice.
