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 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.

Lincolnshire Day!


October 1st is Lincolnshire Day, a great opportunity to celebrate some of the wonderful things about Lincolnshire.   



I am a Lincolnshire Yellowbelly and I love my county.

I could talk about the delicious food,  the beauty of the county, the culture, history, or traditions...

but I won't.

Instead I'm going to show you some lovely Lincolnshire cottages.  






They can speak for themselves.


I know I have posted this one before, but I love it!

  6. I just love all the wonderful cottages you show. It seems like everything in Lincolnshire is picturesque and lovely--so how does a charming inhabitant like you become a "Yellowbelly"?

  11. Love the thatched roofs, particularly the first one. Reminds me of the cottage in "Quiet Man" (although that was Ireland -- it has the same feel).

    1. Hello Janet, We used to holiday in Ireland, unfortunately that was before I had Jonny's camera to play with, darn it, I could have taken some lovely cottage snaps to show you. Still, Lincolnshire has got some goodies!

    1. Hello Sue, These are very pretty cottages; believe me, our own house is nowhere near as pretty - and nor are the majority! I have found some very attractive sheds...perhaps I should post some. ;-)

  13. Thatched roofs are wonderful, my mum had a little thatched roof cottage in Suffolk.

    Do especially love the little round house.

    1. Hello Christy, I'm so pleased you like the round house too, I've featured it a few times, it's just so dinky. Suffolk has some spectacular cottages, it is far too long since I last visited there.

  14. I knew nothing about Lincolnshire until I began reading your blog. You can post your photos as many times as you like; I've fallen in love with the place.

    1. Hello Mitch, I hope that if ever you feel ready to brave our truly awful weather you will put Lincolnshire high on your list of places to visit! We'll make you both very welcome.

  15. Dear Elaine,
    You live in a very beautiful county. These pics are gorgeous and they do speak for themselves.
    Wishing you a great weekend!

  16. Just amazing cottages! I love them all! Like I said before, I would really love to visit your corner of the world!

    And Elaine, I looked up the Wikipedia link and I think the women wearing leather aprons and saying they had yellow bellies because they had more gold coins makes the most sense...but I LOVED the story of the yellow flannel! :-)
