Hi Nick, Valeria, Frank and Guido, thanks for commenting here!

Nick, below one of the other 'blossom shots' fellow Panoramio user Christien was so kind to tell us that this probably is a pear. Maybe Amelia can confirm this. :)

Valeria, this probably is a pear. According to wikipedia your country places second in the 'Top ten pear producers' list so you should have seen one of these things before. :) Thanks again for the Y*!

Frank, dan leg ik even een nieuwe tag aan, geen probleem!

Guido, nogmaals bedankt, altijd leuk om je reacties te ontvangen.

Greetings, Tomas

Almost certainly this is pear blossom Tomas and so beautiful that it has got to go into my favourites - I didn't know which one to choose :)))

Genus: Pyrus

Family: Rosaceae

What's in a name? that which we call a pear By any other name would look as sweet ;-)

Greetings, Amelia

Ok Amelia, thanks for your confirmation! :) I'll change the titles accordingly.

Also a big thanks for the Y*, much appreciated!

Greets, Tomas

Prachtige close up Tomas! Moet heel mooi zijn op de Lingedijk (en druk) als alles staat te bloeien! Groeten, Dick

Thanks Beatriz!

Bedankt Dick! Het was inderdaad erg mooi daar en ook wel een beetje druk, al viel dat laatste nog alleszins mee. Het was dan ook wel een vrij grijze dag (zie ook de andere foto's van dezelfde dag) en het hoogtepunt van de bloei moest nog komen volgens mij.

Greetings, Tomas
