Pears!

I am a sucker for poorly plants.  If I see one lingering on the discount rack, and it looks as if it might survive, I'll buy it and give it a home.   My most recent purchase was a pear tree.  I have visions of harvesting luscious, golden, juicy pears.



I know I am a bit too optimistic because my little pear tree is very small, very young, and slightly damaged.  



Sad as the little tree looks, I have faith in her. I know it's only a matter of time until we harvest luscious, golden, juicy pears. 
  
While we wait for our tree to grow,  pop over to FENLAND LOTTIE for her delicious recipe for Pear and Vanilla Butter.  It's the first pear recipe I am going make.  I can't wait!
