3) Blueberry blossoms swelling and opening into white promises of blue fruit.
4) Black cherry trees unfolding delicate, unblemished new leaves.
5) A lost apple tree blooming pink and leafing out in perfect green.
6) Sparkleberry trees with clumps of white blossoms even as last year's black fruits still hang.
