Pears

Beautiful color
Artistically shaped
Running sweet juices
Tarts, pies or crepes
Lots of sweets from these will be made.
Eating them fresh, though, is my favorite way.
Thinly sliced with some cheese and wine
Thank you, Autumn, for this fruit so sublime.
Yep, I ate three already today. Yum.

  13. Eating pears by the pair
    Describing them with such flare
    I take it they go well with coffee
    That's just what you need a tree
    Then another the kitties can climb with glee
    Never tried them but they don't look all that nasty to my ocd..haha

  15. Pat ~ if you can eat an apple
    a pear you could sample
    and live to tell about it
    without having a fit.

  19. Pears are my favorite fruit... to paint!
    (Not to eat, that would be strawberries... or avocadoes if we're getting technical. Hee hee)

  20. Hi Betsy,

    I always need a napkin or paper towel when I eat a pear, they are so juicy. They are Hubby's best fruit. He will eat two or three a day. Great poem.

    I also wanted to let you know I have posted the new Theme Thursday along with the new rules. I hope everyone comes and checks it out.

    God bless.

  22. Bette ~ I'm the same way with the dishes and teapots. Not technically looking to expand my collection but sometimes it happens anyway! :)

  28. you know, i was thinking yesterday i haven't had a good pear in a while. i had six bags of freeze dried peaches and apples, but all i wanted was a fresh pear.
    i agree how artistically shaped it is. it's always drawing the sketchers:)
