Day 75. Bradford Pear Tree Bird

15 Mar


This is a magical time of year for me. One of my favorite ornamental trees is in full bloom now. Last night as my wife and I walked our dog Maddie, we stopped and picked off a handful of blooms from a row of Ornamental Bradford Pear Trees, lining the street. I just love how these small white flowers transform a tree into an enormous bouquet. But just like girl scout cookies, as soon as they make their annual appearance, they quickly vanish. This year, I determined these Pear Tree blooms will last longer. If only on my blog. Enjoy.

    So true. It would be such an enjoyable time of year if he didn’t have to suffer so. And the most ironic twist of all? It’s his FAVORITE season! Happy spring!

    Thanks Jennifer. It’s a cruel twist that such beauty can leave some sneezing and wheezing.

    What a beautiful bouquet! I love spring. If only the hubby didn’t suffer with the allergies, I’d love it much more.

    It’s so beautiful. Somehow a Christmas Carol (but slightly different) pops up in my head. :-)
