I saw a pear tree for sale, a baby tree, inside a SAM's CLUB today.
I would have bought that pear tree. I know a place that is right for it.
But , I bought the Seagate - 4 terabyte external hard drive instead.
I was thinking about it hard . I mean, I really do need to cut down the Pin Oak because it only invites squirrels into our yard and they constantly get up on the roof and try to live in a hollow in one of our Sycamore trees and may have killed it. So, If and when the time comes that I have those two trees cut down, I will simply replace them with a few pear trees because I know that pears do well in Dallas.
At my parent's home , where I once had a rope hammock strung between a pear tree and a Hackberry tree and we used to get lots of juicy pears that we wrapped in newspaper and placed in a paper sack in the closet until they ripened fully to the point they would literally taste like honey, sweet and moist. Very nice pears. So, maybe when I find the extra cash available I can pay to have those two old trees removed so I can plant at least one pear tree in the back and maybe a nice small sized shade tree or maybe a red plum tree in the front where the once proud Sycamore will have once stood. I can't make up my mind yet.
