The Bartlet Pear, This tree in my Garden is actually very small. It stands at the max of 2 meters. However it is a real producer. This tree needs a second for propagation and it is not another Bartlet, it is a Bosc Pear that is ideal or this. This is the pear that you draw in elementary school!!!! It is a beautiful fruit and tastes very nice.
The Bosc Pair, This pear is an Ugly Duckling. However for taste there is no other to surpass it. If you love the taste of pears this is the one. This guy needs a second Pear for Propagation and it is the Bartlett. So if you do like I did and buy one of each. Your problems are solved. This tree grows very large. Mine is already at least 4 meters tall.
The Burbank Plum, If you love plums you will love this one. It has to be the most beautiful flowering fruit tree in the spring and it is always the first to show off. If I have a complaint about this as a tree is that it will grow huge. up to 2 meters a year. I always cut the years growth way back for the next year.
I have a Macintosh Apple but I am not showing it here as this is the tree's first year and I killed the Babies !!!! hard to do that really!!! so it will concentrate on producing roots.

Our Queen was in Ottawa the other day to celebrate our 143 birthday. I will only show one pic here. What a great day of pomp and ceremony. More so it was our Nation's Birthday.
Sadly I had a few complaints when I posted a few Be Proud of Canada posts as our National Holiday approached. I just want to say here, I am not anti American, I just happen to be as proud of my Great Nation as the Americans are of their Great Nation. That said Happy Forth of July to all my American Relatives, Friends and Followers.
I am looking forward to seeing all the Fourth of July pics this week

This is what keeping nature in the garden is all about. Leaving some of the natural fona where it be, nature will come.
