Magnolia/Tulip Tree

Update.........it appears we are all correct.
The tree is known as a magnolia tree and a tulip tree...see here.
There are lots of different varieties...I think this is an evergreen.
In England most magnolia trees are pinky/white and they flower before the leaves appear and you tend not to get the two together.
 Thanks for all your comments....we learn something every day!!! :-)
