The pear and the peach trees are blooming beautifully. I couldn’t resist running in and getting the camera. I was suppose to be weeding out from under them. Last year we had a late frost and we only had a hand full of pears. I am hoping for a better harvest this year. The white blossoms are from the pear trees and the pink ones are from the peach tree. The pear blossoms were buzzing loudly with bees.

Yours look so much more lush than mine.. But mine are only just planted.. Soooo looking forward to when they’re large enough to produce.

What all are you planning to do with the Pears?

beautiful photos—definitely “needed” to be done.

We only had a few apples last year. We think a late frost got them as well. Oh I hope we are good this year! Come on apple cider and apple pies.

Mickey, your trees are breathtaking. Just what I needed to see after the snowfall last night! Pears and peaches…yummy. And homemade apple pies with thick melt-in-your-mouth crusts and brimming with juicy apples…Can never buy baked from the grocery store ever again. Thanks for the pictures.
