Nature’s ‘Christmas tree’ ornaments by rhoing

Nature’s ‘Christmas tree’ ornaments

I photographed some trees with what I think may be somewhat distinctive “branching.” I thought one of those would be my post because the trees are so striking, but I changed my mind. I took two frames of one tree's “fruit” for diagnostic purposes and I liked this image better, with the bows on the old-fashioned lamp posts in the background.

Taken in the “historic” district of Carbondale, on East Main Street between Maple and Springer.

From another photo I hope to get an ID. These fruits look suspiciously like the fruits on the Cleveland pear tree (genus Pyrus) we planted in our front yard many years ago.

Identified as Pyrus calleryana 'Bradford' (“Bradford pear”).
