    but in Texas it was the ubiquitous Bradford Pear. One or two of them are decorative but a whole suburb full is monotonous.

      (Pink Floyd pun. . . can't help it.)

      Those pears were so gorgeous the first time I saw them in profusion in a rocky soiled temperate area that I photographed them constantly. Then I noticed that they were appearing in buckets in parking lots. Then I noticed that they were appearing in every lawn.

      They're polite citizens, like the hybrid cherries, and keep their roots to themselves. This is good for buckets and parking lots. It's not really ideal for stopping erosion.

      People complain about dirt, but I'd like to see them make some.
