the poor little tree that could ...

My pear tree in the front yard is coming to life. Usually.. this means that we will get a glomping of snow in the next 2 weeks that will kill all said produce from the pear tree.
I hope not.

While we could certainly use the water.. I am hoping that this will be the first year that this poor little tree isn't nipped by snow and frost. That it's little flowers will continue to bloom and flourish; and that if it does bear fruit .. AND that the damn squirrels don't eat it all !
He he he.

Anyway -- love the blooms. It completely made my day.
