What a pretty tree! It sure does look like a Magnolia. Plenty of gorgeous pink flowers for the spring. If only they would last a little bit longer.

I love tulip magnolias -- the blossoms are so gorgeous. I've got a star magnolia growing in a pot on my patio, but it's kind of iffy with our occasionally cold winters.
