March Blooms

Bradford Pear

Just had to stop and capture the beautiful Bradford Pear trees in bloom at the city complex in Grapevine on Sunday.

All this beauty is free, but temporary.

Blossoms were already gently falling on the breeze; it was like something described in a Jane Austen book. I took a video, but it doesn’t really capture the feeling.

The white petals were pooling around the base of the tree.

Lovely!

  1. Your picture of the pear blossoms reminds me of the cherry blossom trees. When the wind blows, it looks like it’s raining flower petals.

    Lovely indeed!

  2. I’ve never seen a cherry tree in person. In photos they look gorgeous!

    The only downside to the beauty of the Bradford Pear is that the blossoms only last two or three days. Beautiful, but sad.

    • Amazing, isn’t it? All that glory for such a brief time.

      I’ll always remember seeing them in bloom on my way home from the hospital. When I’d gone in, everything was still dead and brown. Almost 3 weeks later it was like a miracle – everything was leafing out and blooming.
