Pear Trees

They’re ornamental Bradford Pears which means no fruit, but pretty Fall foliage.   They sit at the end of our 1/2 mile driveway which hopefully will be paved before we have any snow.  We’re on the list.  The last we heard was it’s supposed to be done by December 1st.  Or was that started by December 1st?  At any rate, December 1st is Wednesday so we’ll see.  Small town living can be a struggle some times to get work done.  Or to get someone to show up for an appointment.  Or to hope what work you do eventually get done is quality  Last year our driveway was so bad there were a few days we couldn’t get off the farm.  That’s why we traded our smaller pickup for a big 4WD one in January.  Here’s hoping for an easy winter!

    I hear ya about getting work done. It was a big shock coming from a large city, where people bend over backwards for your business, and everything is about time and money. Getting used to people saying “I’ll try to make it out next Wednesday.” and then showing up two days late only to tell you that they needed a part that would take a week to order. I wouldn’t trade it for anything though.

    Fingers crossed winter is easy on you 🙂

    Thanks! We called them on our start day (December 1), twice, to be told it’s now December 15. Sigh.
