Bradford Pear Trees

Took a walk around the neighborhood. Such a beautiful day. And a quiet one. I heard no lawnmowers. A nice time to get out and enjoy the fresh air. My neighbor always has beautiful Bradford Pear trees. I was wondering how they were doing with the cool nights we have had. Was excited to see the trees are flowering with no problems. So pretty. These are everywhere this time of year. Enjoying the little things life has to offer.

I have seen lots of trees bloomed when I was an hour south but here in town none. My apple trees and lilacs are growing buds but haven't bloomed yet.

My lilacs only bloomed two blooms, then the cool temps got it. They are one of the first to bloom.

It's surprising how fast Perennials pop up. One day I their poking up through the ground and a few days later they are completely in bloom. I noticed that with my daffodils.

@dgobucks226 I agree. Another reason I love the perennials.

I love these planted in rows. But the blooms don't last too long.

@caroldm Lawnmowers are the bain of my life, buzzing about as they do like demented wasps at the end of summer. There really ought to be a law against them. Trees, on the other hand, are a pure delight.

They drive me insane sometimes. I agree with you. Trees make the sound not so bad to deal with.

@CarolDM Oh they’re flowers. So when they bloom, they lose their leaves?

@CarolDM I'll bet! Not sure if we have those around . . . I'm no tree expert . . . I thought all those blossom things were cherry blossoms .

I've either never seen these before or didn't know what they were. We have a lot of trees flowering right now even though the night time temps are still in the thirties.

@CarolDM I fear for my hydrangea this year, the buds started to show up two days before we got snow in late March. I noticed that some are "burnt" by the cold.
