Frosted Apples ~ Thursdays Special


This first photo was taken in December before the blackbirds had begun to feast on the stash of windfall apples out in the field. My last post featured a shot of how the apples look now. Yesterday when I was passing by, there was a whole flock of blackbirds pecking away – at least four and twenty. I’ve never seen so many all once that weren’t in a pie or singing song of sixpence! They didn’t stay to have their photos taken.



Paula’s prompt this week is seasonal. Please take a look at her inspiring photography:

  1. The frosted icing made me think about the option of four and twenty apples baked in a pie 🙂 But preferable to provide such windfall bounty for the blackbirds?

  2. There’s a theme going on here, Tish. Is there a lady with a warty green nose handing these out? That first shot makes them look positively ‘Wicked’ 🙂 🙂

    1. Oh, heavens to Murgatroyd, you divined the warty green-nosed one leaving the apples for me to find. Do you have a witchy inner eye too, Jo. I’m thinking you do :O

  3. These apples are beautiful, Tish. Those tat fall on our Michigan property, by this time of the year, there’s no color left, having been replaced by brown — if you can find any. The deer are efficient foragers.
