Look at the white filled trees! Yikes, look at that scary sky!
Not white fluffy snow but white blossoms of Pear Trees.
In our area, Landscapes are full of Planted Pear Trees with most of them being Bradford Pears.
They are so beautiful in just about every direction I turn my head.They glow with the sun shining on them and unlike our one real Winter Snowfall, the blossoms do not melt within hours!
Not only do we have tons of planted Pear Trees but also Wild Pear Trees in bloom.
I have talked about these trees in the past but could not find the posting. Anyway, I left that posting a mystery as I did not know what these trees were at that time.
Yesterday, I contacted our retired Extension Agent and he informs me the trees are Flowering Pears while some are Fruiting Pears.
These Pears are abundant and with the many blooming Planted Pear Trees, they are a beautiful sight.
I came upon some in our back woods and took this close up shot of the blossoms. I never knew our back woods had any until the Saint and I took a stroll this past weekend. I stumbled upon some other interesting things while in the woods but will save those for another day.
I do not have any White Blossomed (Blossomed, is that a word?) Pear Trees in my Garden. The trees are too fickle for me but I do have several Bridal Wreath Bushes in bloom. They also look as though they are covered with snow.
The tiny Bridal Blooms are so cute to me and remind me of the days I played bride with my dolls and used the blooms as bouquets for them. Ah, the childhood memories.
Atlanta had the real snow but I prefer this GEORGIA SNOW IN MARCH, In the Garden...
Note; I have been sitting on the Grand Jury and finding it most interesting. I cannot speak of what goes on behind the closed doors as I am sworn to secrecy but I do have one thing I would like to share with you that I learned yesterday. As gardeners, I think you may get a chuckle from this.... "Collard Greens ARE a Weapon"! So be careful if you are growing Collard Greens in your vegetable gardens...
