Just Some Pictures

Today was a glorious spring day, and while I was busy running from class to class most of the day, I did manage to take a few pictures.

Forsythia (Forsythia sp.) and Siberian squill (Scilla siberica) - I really like the color contrast, which unfortunately did not come out quite as strong in the picture

A star magnolia (Magnolia stellata)

A close-up of a few flowers of the magnolia

Periwinkle (Vinca minor)

Winter hazel (Corylopsis spicata)

More spring color coming soon... :)
