Ornamental Pear Tree, December 1-2, 2013

Straight Out of the Camera, November 20, 2013
Ornamental Pear Trees are grown for their pleasing shape and vibrant green leaves in Spring and Summer. In the Autumn the leaves change to yellow, orange and red. The tree produces tiny fruit that is enjoyed by birds and other wildlife.

Have a Wonderful Week!

  1. What vibrant colors from the ornamental pear! While I love their fall foliage, the fruit makes such a mess, but the squirrels and blue jays do seem to enjoy it. Our first frost is predicted for Wed so I expect our ornamental pears will be wearing their fall colors soon. Although I have heard that cold doesn't have anything to do with the leaves changing, but I'm not sure about that!

    1. Our tree stayed mostly green after the first two or three frosts. But when the temperature got down to 21F on Nov. 14, the leaves changed color very quickly.
      I will enjoy seeing your tree colors, as most of our leaves are brown and on the ground now. (only 40F tonight with rain expected)

  2. The leaves radiate Autumn glows. So lovely in this light.

  3. The foliage on them is always spectacular at this time of year.

  4. Beautiful color in those leaves!

  5. Love the colors! Absolutely beautiful!
