A-Pear-Ently it’s my Pear’s birthday.

On this day in 2013 I bought an ‘Early Gold’ pear at the Earth’s General Store Get Growing Day. (This year’s is Sunday! – more info. I am going.) I can’t remember which vendor had them but I think they were from Bon Accord, AB. My pear was about one and a half feet tall, just a stick really. I took this picture later that summer.

The first time I ventured into the back 40 this year I actually almost started to cry because I saw this:

It’s taller than my garage roof. It has never bloomed or produced any fruit, but I don’t even care because I love it.
