Autumn Flowers are beautiful, and Autumn Leaves are breath-taking,
but let's not forget Autumn Fruit.
Our pears begin to get ripe in late September or early October.
We are at the end of the harvest now,
but there are still a few pears in the top of the trees.
Sometimes the pears high up in the trees fall with such force that they burst open.
It doesn't take long for the bees to find them!
Most of our pears weigh from 8 to 12 ounces,
but we had a couple of whoppers this year.
Pears are great eaten raw or cooked,
and as everyone knows,
"A pear a day keeps the veterinarian away!"
