We have these Asian Pear trees in our yard that are blooming like crazy now. They do not grow edible fruit, but the bees just love them and they are very pretty while they are blooming. They do not smell very good though–some describe the smell as fishy mushrooms…not too pleasant.
Anyway, while out working in the garden yesterday, I stopped to admire their hard work and beauty…both the bees and trees and snap a few pictures.
Here are a few images that I manipulated in Photoshop to heighten the bright springiness of the day. I turned up the cyan in a couple of them as well as yellow in the middle one and played around with some other effects to create a sort of painted effect. I think they turned out pretty. 😉
