I had no idea that those were saucer magnolias. We always called them tulip trees!

Those are beautiful pics

Too much snow on the ground yet for our flowers to think about peeking out!

I love the scent of lily of the valley and magnolias (had them in my wedding bouquet MANY years ago!)

Happy WW!

Lovely flowers and a very cute little squirrel. Whenever I see flurries in the air I'll just pop over to your blog and pretend it's spring!

Hi DebMcC,

Your photo of the Star Magnolia is lovely!
As to the mystery plant, I think that these are Snowflakes - the genus is Leucojum. They resemble Lily of the Valley but grow from bulbs rather than pips, and don't have the characteristic scent of Lily of the Valley.
Snowflakes grow in large clumps at the Zilker Botanical Garden here in Austin - I've always loved their delicately scalloped green edges.
