Snowy Apples

Apples hanging on a tree, with a cap of ice and snow.
Still hanging on...

This was a great year for apples. Every tree I found was practically killing itself under the weight of its fruit, and many trees still have apples barely hanging on.

This photo comes from the yards of an old farmhouse, squeezed between two long-abandoned railroads. Its fields are slowly filling in with apples and ash trees, as the first real snow of the year finally falls!

Love this photo. It was an amazing year for apples. Our town started harvesting apples from trees around town and making applesauce in the community center. Hope next year's crop is as good.
