Great Pear

Pear, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

Today's post (if Blogger actually lets me upload it!) is a testament to Global Warming, or at least to how warm our autumn has been and for how long. This Japanese Pear (in a friend's yard) normally turns this gorgeous colour for a couple of days and then sheds all its leaves in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it manner bu this year it's been over a week and still going strong. Beautiful isn't it? I know, he could sweep his yard occasionally...
