Has spring really sprung?

The robins have started playing in my yard, scratching around for worms. And last Monday I looked up at my Bradford pear tree, shocked to find it in bloom. I kept thinking we'd get some winter before that happened! One good ice storm a couple of weekends ago was it, I guess.

Anyway, here's a photo of the tree:

It seems winter is arriving a bit late everywhere. The ski resorts are just now getting the snow they'd hoped for--all the better for Spring Break, I suppose.

We had a pear tree when I lived in Oregon. I had to cross four acres of blackberries to get to it, but it was soooooo worth it! :)

That's a really pretty picture. I noticed last week that the Bradford Pears in town were showing some big flower buds. I didn't see today that any are blooming yet, but it won't be long.
