Isn't it December?

I went to Mom and Dad's the other day. Nothing unusual about that. Nope.....not at all. What was unusual was the amount of apples that are still on one of Dad's apple trees.
It is almost the middle of December.
There are so many apples still hanging on one of the red apple trees. Dad usually uses his hook thingy to knock them down for the deer. These apples must have been too high for him to get with his hook. It will be interesting to see just how long the apples stay on the tree. I know the deer are hoping that they drop soon. They love apples. We saw 'Bambi' the other day checking out the apple tree. He disappeared into the woods, we suppose, looking for another tree with fruit that was a little close to the ground. It is going to be fascinating to see if they are still there in the spring.
