Outdoor Wednesday and ABC Wednesday, October 29-30, 2013

ABC Wednesday
P is for Pear Tree
Pear Tree in the Spring
Pear Tree in the Autumn
Largest one this year - 1 lb 9 oz. - about 710 kg - CORRECTION: That is 710g
Most of our pears are about one-third this size.
If you have an easy recipe using pears, I would be very happy to have it.

Outdoor Wednesday
A visitor on my Butterfly Bush October 26, 2013
I think this is the Gulf Fritillary Butterfly, Agraulis vanillae.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

  3. That is a large pear and how nice to be able to pick your own! I like pears simply "paired" with cheese such as bleu cheese or gorganzola in a simple salad with maybe some walnuts added. My friend used to make a fancy looking pear tart that was delicious, but I never did get the recipe. Enjoy the fruits of the season!

    1. Nope, no partridge. But if you click on Cats under Labels on my sidebar, you'll see I have a Cat in a Pear Tree!

    Have a great week.

    1. I am terrible at Math. Looks like I put the decimal in the wrong place!

    We have several Asian Pears, they are all gone now. But, the canning pear is still loaded.
