Can't you just hear Tiny Tim singing that? Is he still living? Hmmmm.
Anyways....I had never seen these before nor heard of the tulip tree, bush, whatever you want to call it, before I moved to GA. And to tell you the truth, yesterday afternoon on the way out to go home was the very first time I got up close and personal with them. They smell heavenly! I didn't know they had a smell. But they are gorgeous and they don't last that long before leaves come out. I'm surprised the pics turned out as good as they did because the wind was blowing. I stopped on the way back in from lunch just now to get a pic of the whole bush in bloom.
I hope my pictures of spring springing puts a smile on your face.
