Pear Tree Blossoms: Beauty in the Details

The Bartlett Pear trees are in bloom in Houston, hugh white balls of white adorning the streets and even shopping center parking lots. It's the sure sign that Spring has arrived, and it quickens the heart.

Like most flowers, however, the beauty up close is even more spectacular. The pear blossoms are tiny, translucent, and so very fragile. I hope you enjoy this photo from this morning in our back yard.
