Pear tree...

... minus partridge but you can't have everything. This caught my eye. It's only a young tree. In fact, I saw it being planted just a couple of years ago (see HERE) in the gardens belonging to Shipley College's horticultural department. It is now proudly displaying a very respectable crop of fruit. The golden pears really glowed in the sunshine amongst the leaves that are now turning a deep russet red. I've enhanced the effect a bit to bring out the richness of the colours.

But remember your Shakespeare:  'All that glisters is not gold.'
