pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That was two years ago...he's still in Shanghai and I am still writing. There will be nothing clever, witty, or well written; nothing to impress. It is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.

I have moved over to my new blog: Bramble Rambles - you are welcome to call in and have a read.

Woven Dish Towels from Joanne

You can find this post over on my new blog Bramble Rambles.   Two beautiful woven dish towels and a lovely little purse - all made by Joanne from, they are truly delightful and she sent them to me!

Setting Grandpa Right

Grandpa is used to being right.
this little tyke is bright and won't be fobbed off
or listen to "nonsense",
she soon set Grandpa right when he tried to convince her
that the big yellow combine working in the barley field
was really a gigantic yellow dragon...
