Moncton in bloom

Magnolia trees bloom in Moncton, 08 May 2012 (Dearing photo)

What a beautiful time of year in Greater Moncton!

Trees are sprouting leaves, flowers are in full bloom and the aroma of freshly cut grass is everywhere.

During a walk yesterday, I captured several magnolia trees blooming in Riverfront Park.

A horticulturist friend of mine mentioned the trees, which are native to the American South, have suffered some damage in recent days given that overnight lows have dropped below freezing.
