Delightful Pear Trees in Bloom

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.

  1. I love them all though the first one is slightly better as there is chance to see them in snow as we did this year! Also it really is the first sign of spring and we all know that it will just get better and better from here on! There really is no better place then our beautiful island. I love it when friends travel all over the world to far distant and exotic place only to come back and tell me that Mallorca is still way more lovely then anywhere that they have been!
