Shapely, colorful pears practically paint themselves.... It takes me awhile to pick them out at the store. I guess people around think I'm a bit nuts, I look through all of them... put a few aside.... reexamine them for shape, color, stems, etc. then pick the 3 I want to buy.... I feel like I need to tell people they are for a painting, cause they are looking at me in a strange way... HA !
