Tackle It Tuesday, "Magnolia"

Also shared with: Theme Thursday, recollections

This spring is almost over, but I have still sweet memories to this spring. At first the cherry blossoms blooming and than the wonderful candle like Magnolia flowers starting to bloom. I don't have a Magnolia tree in my garden, but in the streets around me there are several gardens in which Magnolia trees bloom.
It's a nice sight and than the scent of the flowers in full bloom ... awesome.
One of the Dutch most famous painters is Vincent van Gogh. He lived for a while in the French town of Arles and around that city were a lot of Almond trees, Magnolia like trees, which he made immortalized in his paintings. The flowers of the Almond are almost the same as the flowers of the Magnolia.
