Pear Blossom Time in Mississippi

Pictured above are pear tree blossoms in an orchard on a high ridge at an old homeplace near the Tombigbee River in Itawamba County. For many years the orchard at the old homeplace was probably the source for preserves, jams, jellies and delectable "half-moon" pies fried in a black iron skillet on a wood stove.
