Bradford Pear Blooms

The Bradford Pear tree is quite beautiful come mid-March in North Carolina.  Once the tree is in bloom, it is covered in tiny white flowers.  The downfall of this tree is the odor, it's quite repulsive.  This is a flower you won't want to smell up close or even 10+ feet away.

For now we will enjoy its spring beauty and lovely stink.
