It is still officially winter but it looks more like spring everyday.
Wednesday, I took a photo of a cluster of ornamental pear buds. Along with daffodils, the ornamental pear trees are one of the first heralds of spring. They only bloom about two weeks but it is a glorious two weeks. Each tree looks like a huge puff ball.
Thursday, a few buds started to bloom... isn't it pretty. Won't be long till full bloom!
Last week, I posted the first daffodils in the garden. This week, my little boy spotted the first naturalised clump blooming in the field.
These early birds are petite blooms-- aproximately the diameter of a quarter. Not as showy as their larger cousins but still they are sweet little flowers.
We found a petite yellow one too. A bit misshapen but we don't mind-- Spring is knocking on the door!Pin It
These are so pretty! I really glad spring is here. I'm looking forward to lots of flower macros in the next few weeks!ReplyDelete
These are such pretty shots! I'm enjoying the pear trees around here too, but I haven't seen any daffodils yet. It's a fun time! I notice a new flower blooming everyday.ReplyDelete
Isn't it fun to see some color!? Lovely captures.ReplyDelete
Our pear tree is busting out too here! But you forgot to mention the odor that comes with the full blossoms! Smells a bit like sewer!!! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your shots, the flowers are very pretty. They look nice against your cute and springy lemon background too!ReplyDelete
Texwisgirl: Ha! Yeah, they are stenchy when the breeze blows the wrong way. Some are are stinkier than others-- wonder if it depends on the variety or if they are male or female-- hmm...ReplyDelete
Thanks for all the lovely comments!ReplyDelete
