Among the beautiful springtime flora are Saucer Magnolias (Magnolia soulangania.) Many people refer to them as tulip trees, even though they're a magnolia variety. These deciduous trees produce large red and white blossoms in the early weeks of spring, then shed their flowers for leaves.
This particular example of a Saucer Magnolia was photographed on the corner of Blagden Avenue and Allison Street NW.
