Saturday Snapshot - Spring is trying to spring here in North Texas!

We have had unusually warm weather this winter here in North Texas, and the silly Bradford Pear trees have decided that they think it's Spring, and are in full bloom all over town.

This is the tree behind out house in the neighbors' yard.  So pretty - I've always thought they looked like giant snowballs!! 






pear blossom up close!

While taking pictures, I happen to glance over at our vegetable garden area, and saw that the onions were still holding their own - look at the size of these!!!  I have a bag of red onions I need to get in the ground soon!  I'm itching to get my hands dirty!





Hope you are having a wonderful, spring-like Saturday wherever you are!!

Great shots! That tree is the same kind that's in our front yard. I see the tiny buds just starting to form on it now. Usually it blooms around the beginning of April, but it might bloom early this year.

Beautiful tree! I'm looking forward to the garden as well. Just need to get rid of the pesky snow.

Bradford Pears are beautiful indeed! Although we've had a warmish winter too, it will still be a while before we see any blooms.

Very cool! I can't wait until the cherry blossoms make an appearance here - probably in a few weeks.

What a wonderful looking tree. I'm a bit envious of your early spring.

Lovely! We are hoping for an early spring.

The blossoms are so beautiful! I envy you. We don't usually get flowers and blossoms until April and May here in western NY state. I hope we don't pay for the mild winter with a late spring. No thanks! I can't wait for the sunshine and gardening. :)

I love the pear blossoms!

What a beautiful tree! I love when the trees all come out in flowers--it's too bad it's so fleeting. But maybe that's part of the magic!
