Pear in Bloom

The Flordahome pear (Pyrus communis) tree that we planted last year is thriving! This is exciting, because not all of the trees we've planted have done so well.

Pears have a beautiful white bloom in the early spring. While most of the things I've chosen to plant have been things that have fall color, I couldn't resist this pear.

We had a big pear tree in the back yard of the old Cracker house we rented for many years, and it was beautiful in spring and turned a lovely golden color in the fall. I'm not sure what color this pear tree will turn in autumn, but time will tell.
