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 was two years ago...he's still in Shanghai and I am still writing. There will be nothing clever, witty, or well written; nothing to impress. It 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.

Blog Theft

I was about to do some more work on a post about a former
Belleau resident.
In the course of my research
I found that someone 
has taken several of my old Pear Tree Log posts, 
complete with words and pictures, 
and has posted them as their own.

I am easy-going
but some things make me cross.
This is one of them.

"Don't Forget to Feed the Parrot"

Thank you all for your comments and company over the years.

I simply do not have the time to maintain my blogs as I used to, so time to say farewell.

"Don't forget to feed the parrot", as Flora would say.
