Tree talk...signs of spring

I took an up-close picture of the blooms that are about to happen. I thought it was so lovely that I just had to share. I have four of these trees and when they bloom I will get a picture so you can see them. These are the trees that surround my outdoor room so it feels nice and cozy. They are on both sides of our pear tree.

Our pear tree is just full of blooms and is a promise for a full pear crop this year. Last year while it was in full bloom we had a killing frost and so there was no crop at all. This tree is on the north side of our home and it looks like I will have plenty of pears to make pear sauce this year.

 This is a look at a tree on the south side of our home. It is standing proud and so full of blooms like it is in full worship of its' maker.  It was rainy here yesterday so I spent all day doing household chores. Today the sun is shining and I am off to take my dd to piano lessons and then maybe we will mow the yard. I love the smell of fresh cut grass.

I love the smell of fresh cut grass too. Your flowering trees are lovely and the extra bonus of being fruit trees...great.
What kind of tree is pictured in the first photo...the blossoms look pinkish. Have a great week. Hugs, Linda

The snow and hail have been knocking off the blossoms around here. Our apple and pear tree crops are worried.
Glad to see someone has some nice weather !!
