    What a wonderful shot of a beautiful day at a remarkable place.

    To answer your question about mine the tree in bloom is a Tulip tree (Magnolia liliiflora) which is quite different than the broad leaf large magnolia. This is usually a shrub or small tree. The bare limbs above the blooms are an oak tree which won’t start spring growth for some time yet.
