Pear Tree Blossoms


What's more beautiful than these Callery Pear trees blossoming in Spring? These showy white blossoms don't last long and they liven up the streets with their whiteness. It's the smell that is so strange. It's an overwhelming fragrance and to some it smells wonderful and to others it smells horrible. I overheard comments the other day at church while we were waiting for the service to start. When one of the Deacon's said she couldn't stand the smell I was surprised. And lo and behold, at the end of service the smell had turned and it wasn't so pleasant after all. They are still so beautiful though!
