Bradford pear trees are one of my favorite springtime trees! I love to see the full, perfectly pear-shaped trees in full bloom! They never seem to last very long though (the blooms).
And we finally got the huge crape myrtle tree cut back in our front yard! Seriously, it almost took an act of Congress to get someone out here to do it. We have been looking for someone since February, and they finally came out and cut it in mid-April. While majority of the people out there will say we didn’t cut it back far enough, we don’t like the really short crape myrtles everyone seems to favor here in Alabama. I can’t wait to see how pretty the blooms are next year. We are going for a canopy-like effect with the blooms.
