Flowers In Bloom

Bradford Pear In Bloom

The street leading from my apartment building has a line of Bradford Pear trees. Last week they were just starting to bloom. I love seeing the flowers come out. They’re strong and showy and the trees become a mass of white.

Then my friend Marlene had two orchid cacti blooming in her greenhouse – the flowers are gorgeous. However, fully open, they last but a day. These two obviously bloom during the day. She has a white one that blooms at night – it’s a special trip to see the open flower.

I haven’t taken many photos this spring. Not sure why that is. We’ve had some lovely sunny warm days but I haven’t been motivated to wander with my camera the way I was last spring.

Here are a few I’ve taken:

I need to pull out my camera more! Pay more attention to what’s around me.

  1. Lovely pictures. It’s always interesting to see the different flowers thst are “normal” to a region. I’ve never heard of a Bradford pear.
