When they have had some days in our warm livingroom, they begin to reveal their little white tresures. And fine green leaves pop open as if it was a sunny day in spring. (It's almost sad to cheat them!)
These lovely flowers and leaves are the very best part of having the pear branches in my pale pink jug.
I always try to remind the rest of my little family, to go have a closer look at them in the window-sill. My children and my husband tend to feel the spring-is-just-around-the-corner-feeling as well (or else they are extremely good at faking it!).
However, I think it's important to notice the small pleasures in life, and to me this is one of them...
I just hope that my children will remember - and appriciate - to look at lots, and lots of pear tree branches in the future :0)
