Grape Hyacinths and ...?

Some of the earliest spring flowers here are these Grape Hyacinths. To me these rather prim, tight-lipped, old-maidish blossoms look very unlike "wild" flowers but they seem to be coming up all over the place and there is something undeniably luscious about them. Below is a mystery flower - I don't know what it is but I am hoping one of you visitors can tell me.

I called grape hyacinths 'Marge Simpson Hair' flowers for ages until I learned their real name.

I think your mystery flower is a magnolia... but based upon the above, don't quote me on that!

Can't help with the mystery flower, but sure do like your hyacinth shot.
