A Flowering Tree


This tree is outside a business complex between my apartment and my chiropractor's office. I walked there last week because the car was in the shop getting an oil change. The chiropractor told me not to do that again, and had the receptionist drive me back to the shop. Apparently, walking can be hazardous to my health.

Anyway, so I saw some trees that were flowering. As usual, I have no idea what these are. Someone among the UCF probably does, though. :)

Looks like Magnolia to me. Very pretty. :)

I'm not the UFC, but I agree with the comment above, it's definitely a Magnolia :)

Welcome, Lysambre. :)

If it's a magnolia, those flowers are long gone now. :( That arctic blast that hit the rest of the U.S. wasn't so arctic here, but it has gone below freezing several nights in a row - and from what I remember from a long-ago botany class, magnolia flowers don't stand up to freezing.

Looks like magnolia to me, too - I love magnolia blossoms, they're so lovely, and as you noted, so fragile.

I was going to guess Magnolia, but everyone else got here first. :)
