This is the Crab Apple tree next to my house.
Because of last years crappy Spring and no apple crop,
this year there is a bumper crop of apples and pears!!
Notice that there are NO apples on the ground or the lower branches?
Thats because about 5 deer come in every morning about 5:55 AM and
scarf up all that they can reach. After the snow flies, I've seen them on their
hind legs trying to reach the unfallen apples on the higher branches.
(The deer are like Rats around here).
