Yes, he's drooling as he eats that juicy, sweet apple!
Today our visitors arrived in mid-afternoon, sauntering down to the yellow apple tree to do their clean-up duty. They ignored me in the window, snapping their picture. I guess they knew I wasn't going to jump down on them.
We have had to wrap some young trees in gauze to keep the deer from eating them, and today Larry spread chicken wire on the ground under a tree of Arkansas Blacks to keep the deer from literally standing on two legs and pulling down the branches to get the apples. I've seen them do this, really I have. I don't mind sharing, but we seldom get any apples from this tree because of the deer so I am hoping we'll have some to store year, as the tree is loaded.
They are pretty, aren't they? Even when they're a pest, who can help seeing their beauty?
