In our time crunch, we decided getting the 2 story foyer done, before the last bedroom. We knew it was far more likely to spill or drip paint there, than in the bedroom. I keep forgetting to take my camera to the house.
We were blessed with 7 grocery bags, filled full, of pears, all had fallen from the weight of the loaded down branches. Our neighbor said she was told by someone else that the pears were not ready. I hated for all the fallen pears to go to waste. I'm no pear conniseaur (or spelling bee winner), but the seemed fine to me. We will gather more later, and another friend at Eye Care Associates (hey y'all) is going to let me now when her pears are ready.
