Blooms, Blooms, Blooms

All over the garden, things are coming along.  The apple trees are blooming and getting ready for a healthy crop.
The pear tree is also in on the action.
I've got collections of pink tulips next to the unfurling hostas, all of them looking lovely in the backyard.
Even the iris bulbs, flowers which normally wait for late May, have taken part in the early warmth and made an appearance to join in the Spring celebration.
I look eagerly for the iris blooms; the bulbs are transplants from plants that originally grew in my great-grandmother's yard.  Their annual appearance in my yard feels like a garden blessing.
