The old pear is blooming

It is so lovely, the time of blooming fruit trees...
The picture is taken along one of our many cycle routes.
Everybody loves being outside in the warm sunshine these days, I think. During the past weeks we had temperatures up to +25!C .
Hearing the birds chirping, looking at all the blooming trees, the flowers, butterflies and listening to the humming of busy bees is heartwarming and enchanting.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe described this so well in
'Easter walk' Faust I.
By the way, it is asparagus season and many fields are covered with
huge plastic tarps - to either (black side up) keep them growing or
(white side up as in the picture) to slow down the growth.
It doesn't look very nice but it is more and more common in my region to grow asparagus this way...
Thanks for stopping by :-)
