Pic(k) of the Week: Winter white (but not snow white)

Winter white (but not snow!)

It's winter white...but it's not snow white. Lovely, but invasive, the Callery pear trees have begun to bloom.

Seminary Wood in Decatur, Georgia, USA. 25 February 2022.
The Callery pear (Pyrus calleryana)is one of the first trees to bloom in early March throughout north Georgia. The tree has been widely planted across the southeast for its white spring blossoms and red fall color. [...] Callery trees growing wild trees develop thick thorns along the branches,inches long. Many cultivars of the Callery pear can invade and destroy native ecosystems.
