Escondido. Late January!

I really don’t mean to gloat, but this is what Escondido looks like in late January!

Flowering evergreen pear trees (pyrus kawakamii) are abundant in southern California, but native to Japan.  The shot was taken yesterday on East 5th Avenue in Escondido, which has a row of  20 of these beauties down the center divide.  I’d been driving by for days, chiding myself for not having my camera with me and hoping the blossoms would last.  They did.  Yesterday I grabbed my Nikon from the studio and headed out to shoot.

And, as long as I’m NOT gloating, the temperature was 79° in mid-afternoon when this was taken.   An absolutely perfect afternoon.

    Hola, Steve! Santa Fe is mid 50s – glorious blue sky – looking at the Sangre de Cristo mountains capped with snow. Happy New Year from the Land of Enchantment!

    Then some others of us live in cold dreary places in the winter! But today the sun was out
    and it was in the low 40s and that felt warm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess it is all relative. We are looking forward to that warm Tucson sun. We shall see it very soon. Hope all is well with you and Jonna.
    Lots of love M & G
    P.S. Loved the photos of the pear trees.

  4. Steve, your photo makes me feel as though I’m standing underneath these flowering evergreen pear trees looking up at the magnificent blue sky! I did see them in bloom in Japan and we are also blessed with having them blooming throughout our neighborhood here in Tierrasanta. Lucky us, huh! Do miss you and Jonna! Judith

    Thanks, Judith! Miss you too. We’ve got to figure out a way to remedy! And we’d love to meet Thomas. Hope you are both well. Best – Steve
