Flowering Pear Trees

There’s a street nearby, two blocks long, that’s lined with pear trees. Each springtime they make an absolutely magnificent display. They’re loaded with white blooms, mixed in with spring green leaves. Close up you can see how white the flowers are. At a distance the white petals reflect the green leaves, and give the trees a wonderful pale green glow. I love how they overhang the street, almost making a flower tunnel.

These photographs were all made late in the afternoon, just several minutes apart. It’s not really called Pear Tree Street. That’s just what I call it. I wanted you to get to see the street while the trees are blooming. It’s so pretty!
