Spring flowers

I am sorry this is out of focus, but the colors are so pretty, and it is a survivor from last year, so I tried to get a good picture of it. Maybe next time. :)

My Asian Pear is so beautiful in blossom, I hope it does as well this year as it did last year. But I am worried because I saw ZERO bees, that is a big concern you don't get pollination without bees or some kind of bug.
Blueberries blossoms I have 5 plants, last year only 2 produced any fair amount, I have great hopes for this year, but again the bee thing.


As you can see my picket fence isn't the typical white, but I like the look of the faded paint on the weathered wood, a nice contrast for the tulips.



I love this picture, these little violets just pop up every where, and they are so pretty. I do have to pull a lot as weeds otherwise they would take over, but I love them when they are in bloom. When I have the inclination and the time I pick some and sugar them, they are such a delight at a tea party. They are totally eatable, both blossoms and leaves with a high vitamin C content.

Very pretty flowers. The contrast of the yellow with purple looks lovely on the 1st picture.
