The callery pear trees (Pyrus calleryana) that are ubiquitous all over town are showing some very good fall color this year. These pictures were taken November 11, 2009. I had never thought of them as having any good fall color but now most of the leaves have fallen off the other trees and these pear trees stand out from a long distance away with nice red colors. The first two pictures are of a Pyrus calleryana behind the Hall of Music on the Purdue campus. The third picture is a Pyrus calleryana on Third Street in downtown Lafayette.
