They’re a sure sign that spring is just around the corner: fruit tree blossoms. My neighbor’s ornamental pear was always the first fruit tree to bloom here. But, last year, he cut it down. It was planted close to the fence line so that half of its branches (and blossoms) were in my yard and I enjoyed the beauty of the spring flowers and the shade from the tree in summer. Sunday afternoon as I looked around my yard, I noticed some familiar white blossoms. The invasive roots from the ornamental pear had produced some small trees in my yard and a few of the branches sported flowers. I don’t know if I will keep the randomly growing trees but I was certainly happy that it has been resurrected for its spring show.
It was very windy out so I clipped one of the clusters and brought it inside, out of the wind. I used my D800 and my macro lens.
