These are Bartlett Pears.
Mr. Enoch Bartlett of Dorchester Massachusetts named the pears after himself but there are over 150 synonyms around the world for this type of pear. Originally called “The Williams’ bon chrétien pear, commonly called the Williams pear, or the Bartlett pear in the United States and Canada, is the most commonly grown variety of pear in most countries outside Asia” click for history

Anna was guest blogger on Oct 18th-you can see her gorgeous fall tree from that post on her campus in the third photo.
She texted me tree photos on Monday and today. She’s guest blogger today with a tree update.
A tree study. Why is this season called FALL?
Guest blogger Eileen from Massachusetts went with her family to
Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at
“Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island. They do this every year for the month of October. It’s a walk through the woods surrounded by Jack o’ Lanterns. This year’s theme was television through the decades. Started with 1950’s. Ended with 2010’s. From Sgt Bilko to Game of Thrones. In between were some familiar ones to me; Addams Family, I Love Lucy, MASH, etc. Lizzie and Kevin needed us to identify them. 😀”
Great job capturing the thousands of Jack-O-Lanterns. Thanks Eileen. Looks like a wonderful evening and happy we could join you virtually.

You might remember my August 2022 post of Dead Trees Standing Although there were three photos in the post, one tree was in Columbus. I noticed that the two dead trees in the park across the street are no longer there. They must have taken them down while I was out of town as I surely would have heard the operation.
