Bradford Pear Tree

 Since I have started this blog the post that has been viewed the most is of some Bradford Pear Trees in full bloom that I took about 3 years ago. Now that my own Bradford Pear is in bloom I took some photos and I am posting them now. This first one is of the small tree. Bradford pear trees are considered ornamental trees that do not put on eatable fruit. They are used in landscaping for their beautiful spring blossoms and rusty red leaves in the fall as well as dense green leaves in summer.

 Photos taken at night back lit by a flashlight. These blossoms glow at night almost as if they had a light in each little blossom.
