Blossoms Found

We may not have cherry blossoms out here in California, but we do have flowering pear trees. I’m so glad I thought to photograph them before last night, because we had a pretty severe rainstorm and most of the blossoms are gone now.

Pyrus calleryana or Callery pear tree produces fruit, but it’s very small and hard and only appeals to birds.

I added a cross-processing filter to this one.

    These are lovely too. I like all the fruit trees when they are blossoming.
    The cross-processing gives it a vintage look.
    We have to wait at least two months before there will be any blossoms.

    Ahh… of course you would have blossoms to photograph. I had forgotten the warm mild weather you get to contend with. Nice pictures.

  3. Absolutely stunning. That last photo is so beautiful – so California!

    Flowering pear tree … beautiful, Carole!

  6. When I lived in Atlanta, there were a lot of these trees around. Usually a harbinger of spring. And when the little petals fall it looks like snow!

  7. Hopefully, this will be the year I actually see the DC blossoms.

    Such a pretty view of Spring! (even though it’s a little early for spring)
