There's still hope, then? The buds are trying! There are few things more graceful and filled with sweet light than a blossoming pear tree....

Your photos are beautiful. I do hope the don't get frost bit. I agree about the snow. We are getting snow at the moment, about 2 inches since 6 am this morning and expecting about 6 - 8 more over the day. No buds here, but a few daffodils popping up here and there - under the 12 inches of snow that we have. Love the shallow depth of field in the photos - the colors are wonderful.

Yes, I love the second photo. The soft color of the background is warming.

Gorgeous photos! The Spring after we moved her all of our fruit trees blossomed out in April. We were so excited. But that excitement was dashed when we had snow and a late freeze on Memorial Day weekend. It killed off all of the buds and we had no apple or peach harvest thatyear. So sad :(
