PEAR TREE LOG
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.

Animals, a Dovecote, and Lots of Snow
This beautiful weather vane pointed the way to Arnold's field...
He had tried to cross a cattle grid, got his back legs caught and was unable to haul himself out. Luckily, only his dignity was hurt. I hauled him out and he walked very nicely to heel, for a few minutes!
Xiao Ji is in the foreground, then we have Isadora, Frankie, and Boudica. They don't mind the snow at all and are still producing three eggs a day. Good girls!
