Back in November 2010 we planted a pear tree in the garden.
It has taken a while to get established, after a couple of very dry summers and a very wet one, not to mention the very wet winter we have just had. Up until now it has only ever had a few flowers in spring.
But now it seems to be well established and is putting on a lovely show of blossom.
We're hoping for some home-grown pears this year!
