This is our Bartlett Pear tree. It's covered in blooms, and looks just lovely, even when it's pouring rain.
On Monday, it was busy with buzzing bees, doing their thing.
We've since had two days of straight rain, and there's not a bee in sight.
Last year there were lots of blossoms, but not the right weather for good pear sex, so we only had about a dozen pears. In a good year we can get 100 lbs or more.
I'm sure hoping that we get some more decent weather so the bees can get back at it.
Seems we get a few days of nice weather, and then get blasted again with enough rain to make everything all soggy again. One of these days I'm hoping the ground dries out and stays that way for a few months. It would 'bee' a nice change.
