Flowering Pear Trees


I took this photo two weeks ago and forgot all about it and now most of the blooms are gone from these trees.  For a short time, usually about two to three weeks, these trees show off their showy white dresses all over town.  It's an amazing spring time sight.

The blossoms are beauts. Thanks for giving me a preview of what is still to happen here.

Gorgeous. Glad you remembered and posted it! We have similar trees where the blooms last just a short time but while they're out, they are a wonderful sight!

This is a pretty shot. We have flowering trees blooming all over too. Pinks and whites, a feast for the eyes after a brown and grey winter.
