"P" stands for..............

So today things beginning with the letter "P" jumped out at me.........must be a teacher thing.

A pair of miniature horses........Speedy and Monique taking in the sun after breakfast this morning.

These twin ram lambs are out of Lil' Country Acres Eliza Jane and Jammer. The moorit boy on the left has about an inch & half scurs and the spotted kat ram is POLLED. Only signs of a scur is an itty bitty knob on the left..............

.......yep, there is nothing there!!!!

And a view from the other end. Both boys are being offered for sale. The moorit is $100. $110 if registered and $75 as a wether. The spotted kat ram lamb is $140. $150 if registered and I really hate to see him wethered as he is looking really nice:)

"P" is for the pear tree along the creek. This tree has been here since I bought the property in 1991. I hate pears, yuck. However, it is a shame that if these pears are edible, that I am doing nothing with them.

The tree is LOADED with PEARS!!! Does anyone know where would be the best place to get them tested to see if they are edible? I am sure I could sell some of these or at least give them to those that would appreciate them. Any good tips on pear growing? I have never treated the tree with any pesticides either.

And of course, "P" is for Pink on my screened patio.
It is a good thing I teach 8th grade and not the little kids......I'd have to do this letter thing all the time. Now the letter "P" if I am thinking like an 8th grader...........oh, those pathetic puberty minds just kill me! Thank goodness for summers!!

Pamela,
I am glad you liked it! I tried to leave a comment on your blog cuz I loved the red thing story but my computer would not let me:( I'll have to try again.

Deb,
It is good to hear from you! I am so excited to have a real garden this year, though it does keep me busy!

Hi Kristi? Right? As an old jam-maker/canner, I can't imagine a pear that isn't edible! And good!
So sorry you don't like them. I've canned pears, made pear compote, and dried them in a dehydrator. All yum!
