Delightful Pear Trees in Bloom
Majorca Pear Trees
I sometimes wonder whether I like the first Mallorcan Springtime better than the second one, or the other way round. The first Primavera would be in January/February with half the island covered in white and pink almond blossoms, whereas the second Primavera would be now, from mid-March to mid-Aril, when hundreds of fruit trees of the peach, cherry, nectarine, apple, pear, prunes, plums variety and the like are in full bloom. The blossoms in today’s photo would appear to be of the pear variety (Pyrus communis); please correct me if I should be wrong. This pear is native to the island, strange as it may sound, as is the cherry (Prunus mahaleb).
The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: March 20th, 2012. The time was 17:58:20.
