So, Pears and Roses are Related

Yes, it was a big surprise to me that pears and roses were in the same family. It makes sense when I think about the beautiful and sensuous shapes of the rose hips also with other attractive attributes of both pears and roses. Well, to celebrate my new found information, I painted pears of every kind I could find on my visit to the market, accompanied by some grapes and then grapes with glorious blue cheese.
