Bradford Pear Trees


As I was out and about today I couldn't help but notice all the
Bradfor Pears blooming in the area.  The parking lot at the grocery
has probably 25 of them planted all about.  Lovely!

    1. Do you have Bradford Pear trees there? These don't bear fruit. They are called that because their shape is like a pear. ha.

    2. Yes I understand Betsy and the shape is like pears not only think mine are little (lol)

    1. are they those weeping cherry trees? those are in bloom here too...so beautiful! Our neighbor has one.

      Delete
    2. No, these are not weeping. They actually look very similar to the Bradford Pear trees, just not quite so tall.

      I bought one of those weeping cherry trees last year. Looking forward to seeing it bloom this spring. :)

    3. you guys are probably a few weeks behind us...just like we are behind Ky and TN. They had gorgeous blooms a couple of weeks ago!

    4. Our forsythia (did I spell it right?) bushes are just blooming.

      The allergies are in full swing at our house. :(

  11. We have a lot of Bradford pears around here, too. I like them, but at OTHER people's places. We had one in our front yard when we moved in, but they have such soft wood that a big storm broke it in half. It ended up resting on the top of the front porch :-)

    1. They are not hearty, that is for sure. We had one that got a fungus and died. But they are lovely!

  12. Looks like spring has really arrived in your area! You are likely a couple weeks ahead of us.
