This year, however, my eyes were hungry for the first signs that something, anything was blooming. First came a tiny purple flower called Henbit, which I'm sad to say is called a weed.
But, by far my favorite, the glorious pear. Pear trees this time of year look like
giant snow ball puffs on sticks. I took this photo of someone else's pear tree.
Our pear tree is much more the Charlie Brown variety. But it's close to the bees who are delighted it's there.
Red bud trees are blooming in the edges of some woods. Daffodils and other bulb flowers are springing up. So what's blooming where you live?
