Tiny little pear

In early summer, some fruit trees naturally reduce their load during the 'June Drop' where some of the excess fruitlets are shed. This is our pear tree, just before it's June drop:

At the weekend I painted one of the little fruitlets.

Hopefully this year will be a good pear crop!
