Spring Buds Blossom

The tree branches are now blooming.  The pear opened first with such pretty little white blossoms.  The apple tree is getting ready to open, and the blooms appear pink!  I am so happy I decided to try this.  The trees I took the cuttings from are not at all this far along in their progress.  The apple has no buds at all on it.  The pear has very tiny buds, closed tightly.

Spring Buds Forced in a Glass Jar

I am just eager for spring.  I cut some branches from our apple and pear trees.  I placed them into a glass jar with warm water and voila!  BUDS.  They look so pretty.
