My allotment chum Phoebe had pushed this pile of windfalls under the field hedge so the wildlife could tuck in and be sheltered. I spotted them other day, spilling through the undergrowth into the field, and instantly thought of the Andrew Wyeth water colour ‘Frosted Apples’. I didn’t have a camera with me that day, and anyway the light was poor, but I caught them instead a couple of days ago, the afternoon sunshine tumbling after them.

Brilliant title for a post!
Thank you, Sue.
I actually think this image is better than the original from where the title comes. Great light and colours.
Thank you, Jude. High praise indeed 🙂
I agree with Jude. In fact I’ll go on to say it is a marvelous image/composition and worthy of a frame and a wall.
That’s very nice of you say so, Ark. Thank you.
I’m with Jude too; it’s a gorgeous image.
And I’m with everyone else. Reminds me of the good apples I used to buy at the farmers market in Ohio, all sorts of varieties, made fabulous applesauce.
Yes, a mix of apple varieties can be absolutely delicious – cookers and eaters together. Mmmm.
oh my, I see what you mean . . .you need a merl of blackbirds and hermitage of thrushes to deal with this lot!
Love those collective nouns, Becky. And quite new to me too. Thank you 🙂
Drop a note to Father Christmas and ask him to get your bookshop to send you ‘A Conspiracy of Ravens’. It is such a fabulous collection of collective nouns!
Oh lovely you. That sounds just the job. This year our family gathering has decided that books will be the only presents between us – new or second hand. Each of us will provide at least 3 titles to go into a lucky dip. After that, people can stick, haggle or swap, and anyway pass them on. A sort of secret Santa book deal!
this is such a brilliant idea, oh I love this. Might try it ourselves. By the way abe books is a great place for secondhand, and you will be supporting mostly small businesses buying that way
A fave destination, Abe books 🙂
yay you know about it – keeps MrB busy as he currently selling at least 5 a week at the moment that way.
