Claudia Kuhn level-classic April 17, 2005

Beautiful image, Cathy. Looks like a tulip magnolia blossom. Mine are white with purple and I have seen a variety just purple so I am sure there is a variety that is all white/cream like this. Perfect image of it. #1262499

Cathy Gregor April 18, 2005

Thanks everyone! I think it might be a tulip magnoia (Donna Neal's suggetion). It didn't have any leaves and I think magnolias keep their leaves all year? #1263998

Cathy Barrows April 18, 2005

very lovely...growing up my grandmother had one in her backyard and called it a japanese magnolia...i think both are correct #1265576

Marjorie A. Lyon April 24, 2005

Cathy, just now saw this looking through your gallery. I have this tree in my front yard, believe it or not! It's an "Elizabeth" Magnolia. I love it, and it's in full bloom right now in spite of the snow we've had all day. I also have a "Jane" magnolia which is purple, but I like this one better.
Beautiful image, BTW! #1287374

Well done Cathy. I saw your photo in Cathy Barrows Gallery an decided to look yours up. Barrows and I live across town from each other, but have never met even though we seem to go to some of the same places. This is a great shot and you have a nice gallery collection. Congrats. RAM #1405243
