Old Pear Tree – Still Producing

Old Pear Tree

I been admiring this old pear tree in my neighbor's yard for two decades. It receives no care but still produces pears. This summer (2010) it produced a huge number of pears – so many that some of its limbs have broken from the load, especially during thunderstorms. The wild critters that eat pears are fat and happy now. 

I took this photo at the beginning of autumn.
