Beautiful picture of (I guess) a kind of Magnolia flower though,
Tulip tree is a misnomer. Real Tulip Tree is one of the most
primitive flower even among the Magnolia, so that it still keep the
green color on its flower (a bit of orange in its part of petal).
(I think Wikipedia may explain better with photographs).

Thank you, Yoshi-sensei. Everyone here in central PA refers to them as Tulip Trees, but you are correct, that is not the right ID. The full name (I think) is Saucer Magnolia Tulip Trees. I will make the correction in my tag.

Whatever its name, it produces beautiful flowers.

Now I understand the meaning of ‘delicate pink’! Lovely.

I think your comment thingy on your latest post is broken. You can write a comment but there is no “post comment” button.

Hmmm. Thanks for letting me know, Allen. When I look at it, it’s still there, so I’m not sure what’s up. If you don’t mind, could you let me know if you’re able to comment when I post today? I appreciate it!

We had lots of those when we lived in norther Virginia, and I always liked the delicacy and grace of their blossoms. Thanks for the reminder; it’s a really lovely shot. (And your Post Comment button is right where it should be, and I’m about to push it…)
