It's Magnolia Day in Oakville

Unofficially of course.  But completely believable if you've had the good fortune to walk the streets or drive around.  It is completely and stupendously beautiful, over-the-top perfumily magnificent.  Big or small they're all vying for our attention.  So very few words, and lots of photos from today and a few days ago from around the 'hood:

I would move into the house, just for the trees.

The same tree - underside:


Doesn't matter if the house is new:

Or old....

One of the few yellows:

This lovely fencing will be up and down the whole street by this evening - waste water mains:

New house - old tree:

Old house - and lovely old tree - love the petals scattered about:

A tiny one tucked in the corner:

One more of that lovely old one:

Let's hope this one makes it through the construction:

Very new - and best scented of the lot - what a colour to boot!

House hiding behind:

 Magnolia reaching out to say hello:

Grey house - pink tree:

Sweet little house and lovely luscious tree:

Rhodo saying - look at ME:

And a little break from all the pink - the Lake this a.m.

I don't know, this might be my fav:

This one is pretty good too:

Violets and petals - very girlie:

These two remind me of showgirls with fans:

Great white just down the street:

Hope you'll come back soon - if you enjoyed this I'm thinking you're going to love Forsythia Day!
