The answer

  Its no secret, its on the photobucket editing program.  I think it is a cool feature and flowers look great.

Cool




A few I like

Just because the blossom is off the plant doesn't make it unworthy of a beautiful photo



     I think this Robin stands on its own without framing.  The shot just turned out.  That is one of the Robins that keeps pecking me.



  I walked around the tree shooting from different angles and light, behind the blossoms, in front of, to the side.  I like the way the light played on this.



   I liked the very subtle pink in this next picture.  Pear blossom.  They smell great

Life around The Pear tree

  As you can tell by the lack of grass we feed the birds and critters under the pear tree.  I would much rather see them then the grass anyway.  We get a wide variety of birds.  From a female oriole, the male wouldn't come down from the tree to a pair of cardinals, blackbirds and jays.  I think we get around 30 or more species throughout the year.  Plus finally flowers.

















The plum tree's blooms.  Will they be the last ones?







 I love the female cardinal with her bright orange beak.  She gets along well with the jay.















  So How many bunnies do you see?

Spring......Finally

  Every year this female robin builds her nest.  This is on my porch.  So the entire time I am working on my flowers her and the male dive at me pecking at my head.  Completely unnecessary as I wouldn't bother them and it is after all....my porch.



         And finally my pear tree is blooming.  So sad it last such a short time.



        From my pear tree I have some of my bird feeders hangings.  I always liked this little sparrow with its red cap.



           This year I hope to get something new.  The death of my old plum tree.  A woodpecker was pecking on it the other day.  I didn't think much of it until later I noticed how much wood chips were on the ground.



    Now woodpeckers don't usually pick a tree that is healthy to start a nest in.  We have known this old tree was on its last legs.  Fitting it will now be a home for these beautiful birds.  Within 2 days the hole is so deep I can't see the bottom.



       Of course I hope to get pictures of the babies.  I will miss my old plum tree though.  Time to plant some new ones.  For now I will enjoy the smell of the fresh blossoms.
