Nooooo my pear trees!

Nooooo my pear trees!
Originally uploaded by Cloth cat
Tis a sad day. When we moved into this house about 6 years ago now there were two lovely pear trees in the garden. Ok so they were rather over grown, but we got some very yummy pears every October. At the moment we have the builders in putting in an extension to the back which will form part of a new kitchen diner - I've been waiting for this work to happen for a couple of years now, so I'm really happy that things are finally starting to happen, but yesterday I came home to find the two pear trees are now sadly deceased. Apparently the builiding regulations inspector took a disliking to the being to close to the foundations and ordered them gone (or v.expensive foundations twice as deep). *Sob*

I think it will be a long while before our garden is in any fit state for anything, but I'd like to think we get some new pear tree planted at some point.

Oh no, you'll have to plant a new pear tree when the work is done. It will all be worth it in the end I'm sure.

Oh - shame about the pear trees, but I'm sure you will have fun choosing a replacement. There are so many lovely garden places to shop round here! Thanks for the comment on my blog the other day!
