Bloom'n Gorgeous


There may not have been anything blooming at the Japanese Garden on Sunday but all around town, the flowering pear trees are in full swing with their explosion of white flowers.


And the bees are just loving the huge selection of blooms available to them for tasting.



I stopped to photograph this group of trees on the campus of the Camelback Bible Church near where I live.  They have a beautiful little courtyard with several of these trees scattered around.

Isn't spring wonderful in Phoenix? We'll have a number of flowering trees begging for attention soon, but it's still been unusually cold here...for weeks. Very frustrating!

Kate said...

Right now I'd give just about anything to see blossoms like that on our trees.

Nice! The season is changing! I can't wait until we start seeing more blooming trees...

That is glorious, Sharon!

I am so envious of you having blossoms around. It isn't too bad here today, -5˚C, but we are heading for a very cold weekend!

Our pear trees aren't blooming here yet (although I noticed in December the bluebonnets have broken ground). We've had an exceptionally cold winter for us but it's warming rapidly so I expect to see them soon. I love their spicy smell.

Oh my goodness! Soooo pretty! We have to wait at least another two and half months, if it isn't too cold!

You certainly picked the perfect title for this post. Very pretty!

I don't think the trees are blooming up here yet but the finches are back and enjoying the warm weather.

totally fabulous Sharon.. Isn't this a sign that spring is on the way ?

Pear trees in full flower in mid-February? Wow. Pear trees were very popular in Columbus but they didn't flower until April. They were always a symbol of spring to me.
