"Tulip Tree" Magnolia

These are blooming all over the place. On the way home from work last night I discovered one at a house being demolished so I helped myself to a branch. Now the weird thing is ... once in the warmth of the house they opened up completely. We never see them open up like that on the tree because it doesn't get that warm this time of the year.
