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 year turned into five! Now he is home and training to become a physics teacher. This 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.

Proceed with caution - don't say I haven't warned you!

Fill your brain with ducks.  Write limericks about ducks and enter Knatolee's Crazy World Wide Limerick Competition.

It is free, it is fun - but it is highly addictive.

I used to have a life, now all I do is write about ducks.

I guarantee you'll have fun.


  1. Keep it up!! YOu're giving me about a dozen smiles a day. YOu are a limerick-writing artiste! :)

  2. Hi Knatolee, Delighted they make you smile. Hope you don't mind - I thought I would spread the word round, see if anyone else is up for some fun! Elaine

  3. Oh please do! The more the merrier!

  4. Trying again to get this comment through. Found you via Dom's blog.

    Remember when prepping a mallard
    To sing it a beautiful ballard.
    The duck will relax
    And practice it's sax;
    Then run headless all round the barnyard.
