Texture Tuesday {Spring Flowering Trees}

Magnolia?  I don't really know, but this beautiful tree grows in an intimate small memorial garden between two old buildings on the Eastern Oregon University campus.  It's a lovely place in late spring through fall, with various flowers, shrubs and trees, a small pool and several metal and stone art pieces.  This week, only one thing is blooming:  the magnolia tree.   Joining with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.     (Some research has shown me that this is a Star Magnolia, a hardy magnolia tree that grows in Minnesota...and it's growing and blooming in NE Oregon.)

I don't think it's a dogwood - not sure what it is. Lovely just the same.

It is definitely a star magnolia. We have them here in Maine. I always look forward to their bloom. My son has one in his back yard (used to be my house) that we love dearly. It's just the most gorgeous thing in early spring!!
Your photo is so wonderful too!

So gorgeous! We used to have a magnolia tree in our front yard in a home we owned years ago. I sure do miss it. It used to bloom in March/April and then in July again.
