Dear Friends, we are at that time of year where ID Arkansas goes into hybernation.  Look for new info and possible snapshots as we near the first hints of Spring.  Until then, you might check some of my other interests at Wood Between the Worlds, or Startled by Existence.  (And a newer roll out of the Mighty Works Project later in the Spring -- or the semi-active facebook version here.)

Bradford Pear

It won't be too many months and I''ll be posting more of these, covered in white flowers. Bradford Pears are one of the last trees to take to color (late November, into December) and one of the first trees to break out in floral bloom (Late Feb/March) - in which they look like huge white eggs. As Pear trees go, the fruit is something of a bust. About the size of cherry and bitter. You'd have to be pretty hungry, and with a stout stomach!
