And a swarm of bees in a pear tree

We are very lucky at Wren's Nest to have a variety of ornamental and fruiting pear trees. This is the last pear tree to flower each year- the fruiting variety. This year it is an absolute picture of beauty - and the bees from up the road agree. I hope they are making lovely honey - and pollinating the flowers to make lovely pears in 2011. Thank goodness for bees. It is a shame about the pears perfume - well it's not exactly a perfume - more a pong - but the incredible show makes up for this.
