Golden Crab Apples


From the window at my kitchen desk.

The leaves are still green, but the fruit is turning gold!

    1. No? They are small...like cherries but most people don't eat them. They are very sour. I did make jelly with them once but usually just leave them for the birds in the winter. :)

    1. A few have turned here and there
      but still some green everywhere.
      We're further south than you
      where things are colorful at your zoo.
      But things are more colorful, shall we say,
      at your place, in several other ways.
      hahaha.

    1. It's funny...they aren't the birds' favorite. They'll eat seed first...and these as a last resort. ha. Although flocks of Starlings swoop in for them...maybe they don't notice the feeder. ha.

  10. You could put miniature apples with that mini tea set for the mini bears tea party.

  15. Great photo! Your ears may have been burning last week as I shared the "story" of Betsy and her five men with my daughter and oldest son ... Daughter Beth and I were in Denver where my son has just moved. Huge decorating project, lots of fun.
