The Last Apple


This is the last apple on our little tree. All week – the blackbird has been enjoying it – but I think he has eaten most of it now.

  1. Lucky that it didn’t drop off otherwise he might have lost out to creepy crawlies!

  2. I looked at your image a long time.I love the brushes of darker red.
    Also it something greater…decay as a part of life, and that is beautiful, too.

  3. Hi Easygardener – you are so right. Funny though – if I put fruit on the bird table they ignore it!

    Hi Phillip
    The birth, death, rebirth, cycle is something close to my hear and is often found in my textile work.

    Thanks to both of you for taking time to leave a comment

  4. The apples on my trees looked like that too. I caught the culprits one day as I spied a couple of stellar jays pecking away. They were too quick, and too observant of the paparazzi’s camera, to catch them in the act!
    Yours is a very inspiring photo…waxing philosophical…

  5. Hi Aerie-el – thanks for the visit,
    Jays are amazing to see when they visit the garden!
