the pear tree interlaced
with walnut-sized fruit

Ha! My daughter has a peach tree & aside from the animals, people walking by take their fill, too! Happy June with pears, Diane!
This happened with our blueberry bush and tulips in MA. :(
It's universal! My NH friend used to have her peach tree stripped by a woodchuck that climbed the tree to help himself. The Shakers used to plant with this is mind: 1/3 for the people, 1/3 to share/sell, and 1/3 for the animals.
