I looked out the back window at sunset and notice the last rays were shining on something pink in Kathy's back yard. It was a little too late in the day for best pictures, but the pink Star Magnolia had bloomed out today. It had not been noticable yesterday! I had seen some white star magnolia in bloom in Lexington yesterday. These are the deciduous types. The green tree in the background, here, is a Southern Magnolia, which is the evergreen type, with the large creamy flowers.
