Pear flowers starting to bloom by taeliac Pear flowers starting to bloom by taeliac
Finally, the Bradford Pear trees are beginning to open their flowers up! And, I'm so happy I was able to get pictures of them at this stage - I just looked at them today, and they're way more bloomed than yesterday.

These flowers are rather small, about the size of a dime or a nickle, but are in these little clusters that start out pink, and then bloom out into white flowers with purple centers.

Beware, though! Bring some perfume in case they do!

No problem <3
