April 30, 2010

We had a beautiful morning earlier this week. The clouds were hanging out over by the edge of the sky and the night's rain lingering on the plants made everything sparkle in the sunlight. I went for a bike ride before breakfast and discovered these on the way in the back gate:

baby pears

I have a pear tree full of baby pears! Last year, we had one pear on the whole tree, until someone reached over the fence, picked it, bit it and discovered that it wasn't mature - then threw it back over the fence. I don't know if I should try to throw netting over this tree to protect the fruit from curious neighborhood kids or if I should hope that having more fruit on the tree to start with will result in some of it being left for me.

There are also cherries setting on the cherry tree:

And blueberry flowers galore:

And some other flowers:

evergreen clematis in bloom

chive flowers at morning

And probably my best flower (who was supposed to be showing off the height of the Shasta daisies outside the back gate):
