A pear

A reminder that although the garden's bounty has started, the best is yet to come

That is a very, very beautiful photo. I don't like pears. (Find their texture repellent.) But the picture is breathtaking. I'll be looking at it in my memory during quiet moments for the next few days.

What a lovely comment to make, thank you Ms Montgomery

Yes, that is a good pear. Certainly a lot bigger than mine are at prsent. Is it a "Conference"? Unlike Esther, I am a big fan of pears. I love them with spiced fruit loaf and blue cheese...

I'll be honest Mark and say I have no idea. The tree has been in this garden for decades, and I just 18 months. Once riped I'll post a picture and hopefully you can put a name to it?

I only feel hapless because some people make it look easy to grow 10 ft marrows or a banquet of greens whereas my courgettes got nabbed by killer slugs and I only got one raspberry. So tips and stories from people less hapless than I are more than welcome.
