Pear Blossoms

Gorgeous pink cherry blossoms get all the attention this time of year.  The pear blossoms are a favorite of mine.   I always get excited when they bloom maybe in part because I know that the cherry blossoms are just around the corner.  Maybe because the blossoms are white and I am always partial to white flowers. John and I spotted these and a bunch of others on a walk a couple days ago.  Even though there are tons in our neighborhood I still miss the huge 5 trees that were recently cut down because of the construction on P street between 7th and 9th streets. pearblossom6 pearblossom8pearblossom3
