It seems like the first thing that blooms as Spring inches near are the Bradford Pear Trees. These are very early blooming trees with beautiful white petals. Not only do they bloom early, but they lose their petals very early as well. When these blooms fall you find out that they stink very badly.
Our parking lot at work is lined with Bradford Pears and after they shed their petals they are everywhere and never seem to go away. Neither does the smell.
They are beautiful to photograph though so this evening after work I loaded the fast 50 on the camera and did some up close and personal shooting of these gorgeous trees as you can see in the first and second photos I've posted.
