I would've thought these trees would bloom there first. How, interesting! :>)

Nope. Around here, they usually lose their leaves first--so much for "Evergreen" Pears--and then bloom in January. At least they have pretty decent "fall" color, here!

I could never understand the common name "evergreen pear" it looses most of its leaves before blooming.
