On The Street Where I Live

The Callery Pears are blooming. This happens every year of course in early spring, but it is only in the last few years that I have known exactly what I was looking at. And I owe my knowledge of certain trees directly to the simple act of sowing some vegetable seeds in a community garden. Falling in love with growing vegetables opened my eyes more fully to the plants around me and instead of vaguely knowing what I pass, I have a name to call things now. For me, this has been fantastically orienting and with each thing I learn, I just want to learn more.

Aren't they? But not the best smelling. Lots of luck with your garden this year.
