Apple Tree

Apple Tree

Our old apple tree is still going strong.  The trunk has bent over so much that the tree rests on the ground.  It is full or woodworm and there is only a small portion of trunk left in the ground.  And yet it still produces this amazing crop of apples each year - and you don't need a ladder to pick them!!

It's lovely to know that some of the ducklings have survived this season.  This group of 10 'teenagers' came up today.  They've nearly got all their adult feathers but no proper wings yet.  They can certainly eat though!

In spite of having a river at the edge of the garden, a garden pond and bowl of fresh water, the ducks are drinking from the watering can! Good job I don't use any chemicals!
