Ornamental pear trees with fall color

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.
