Spring in Tuscaloosa 2


My composition is less than perfect with that big pine in the way, but I loved the contrast between the waxy green magnolia and the stark white dogwood. The magnolia tree here is HUGE. It's one of the largest I've ever seen and it has several giant buddies in the same yard. The dogwood is also large for its type. I think this one is worth a click to enlarge.

The enlargement shows just how big these trees are! Must be some fertile dirt!
