White saucer magnolias.

Saucer magnolias are one of the earliest harbingers of spring. They are also one of the most tempermental. The slightest chill once the buds open and the flowers immediately drop. I was able to cut these branches one evening last week before a frost. Luckily the blooms survived to make a beautiful arrangement. And once the blooms fall, I keep the branches in the vase.  I love their minimalist look.
