The Mourning Doves in the old pear tree.
All told were five when they came to roost
In rays of sun, my heart they boost.
All God's creatures are welcome here
In perfect peace no harm to fear
Bringing Beauty from far and near
To grace my backyard drear.

The tree is old and still it yields fall colors that are pleasing to the eye. The birds seem to love it where the branches are bare and come to sit in the morning sun. Bill has pruned back most all of this Bradford Pear tree in hopes of stimulating new growth and health for the new year and God will do the rest.
