Yesterday turned out to be a very pretty day, but there was a chill in the air that had been missing for the past two weeks. I, personally, didn't miss it but nonetheless it was missing. I've had this Cleveland Pear for about 6 years and it had a rough go for many of those years. This is the most beautiful bloom it's ever had! Now with a good chance of a hard frost this evening I decided to get some nice pictures in case these lovely flowers don't make it through the night. I have two Liberty Apple trees that are in their second season here. I only had one blossom on one of the trees last year. This year they are both full with buds!!
