For Every things, there is a season (painting, pears)

Four different people have told BB and me that they like the new color we're painting the trim on our house. And we have to tell them that's the primer. We're painting the trim the same color it was before. By "we," I mean BB!

The pears are rip, but can't be reached without a ladder--except these few. I ate one. It was GOOD!

I bet you guys could reach more pears than most with Biker Buddy's long limbs. It sounds like you need a fruit picker.

They're ML's pears and she couldn't reach any of them! She could definitely use a fruit picker!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

ML can't look up, so we'd have to do it for her.

The picker looks cool and potentially useful and not TOO expensive.

I like the color it was before! (But I also knew this color was primer...)

Mmmm, fresh pears! My husband and I are going to his grandmother's house this weekend to can peaches and pears, and of course we snitch a few out of the boxes before we can them. :O) I love fresh fruit, and canning is such a fun family activity. I really enjoy it. How lovely to have your own fruit trees.

I'm glad someone other than us liked the old color! YAY!

The pear trees are at ML's, but available to us any time. :-D

I love your house, it's beautiful! The picture with the pears is a very good one, so lovely!
Thank you for the nice comment.
Greetings

The house looks lovely, just about any color looks good with red brick but go with what works for you. So funny that everyone likes the primer best!

your house is gorgeous!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thanks JM, PJ and Goda. :-D

We like the house, but it is actually very small. And the yard is small (the yard you see here is ML's (BB's Mom).)

Dick said...

wellyou, I like it too!!!!! I see your house don't have insulated windows.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thanks, Dick, we like it in spite of its smallness.

It has storms, but BB has removed them for painting.
