Last week-end while I was working in the back garden, I cut a bunch of pear tree limbs and gathered them into a vase. My daughter thought that the buds would open into flowers, pretty quickly.

Quick, as any Mother knows, is relative.

My husband expressed concern mid-week that these “twigs” were a bit of a monstrosity in our little kitchen/dining room. He of little faith.

In the expected time, (by me anyway), the buds have started to unfurl. Now my daughter and husband think these “twigs” were a good idea. In another few days they will be an early glimpse of the showy fruit tree display that is still 4 to 6 weeks away.

Since the weather forecast for Vancouver is rain, rain, rain next week, these delicate blossoms will be a welcome reminder that Summer will indeed follow the showers of Spring.

One thought on “Twigs

  1. The twigs look wonderful. I’ll have to cut some willow twigs when it stops snowing. Your dad is in Vancouver for the day. I thought about flying out with him and spending a few days in downtown Van again, but when we looked at the weather report, I decided to stay home.
