More spring scenes

Here is another magnolia which grows up by the side of the Civic Centre.  It is a lovely deep pink colour, I think.

Nothing like the colour magnolia which paint companies sell in tins.

This flower was a little blurred but I thought I’d post it anyway.

one huge pink magnolia!

There is also a lovely pink flowering cherry tree which is out at the moment too.

Yes, that is the right way up!  Taken from underneath…

And a lovely pink camellia too…

It has gone really warm the last couple of days and I sat out in the garden for a few minutes yesterday.  I couldn’t help noticing that the flies were sitting still too, sunning themselves…

I won’t show you the photos of the spiders…
