‘Ann’ Magnolia

300. Spring

300. Spring

Only a few magnolias, including this ‘Ann’ Magnolia, are still in bloom at the Longenecker Horticultural Gardens in the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum. (Say that three times fast!) More than a hundred different crabapples are coming into perfect bloom, and the lilacs aren’t too far behind.

In all, the gardens feature more than 2,000 trees and shrubs. When the spring flowering trees bloom, the 50 acre garden is crowded with people and their cameras–me, included!

    I love magnolias. These are the first ornamental trees to bloom here in the spring. I wish I could have one in my yard, too. You did well with the soft background. Lovely colors.

    nice photo. It reminds me of a Doublemint commercial. The twin flowers double the pleasure of the photo.
