|Kay Davies photo, February, 2014|
It was a very cold day when I opened the door to take a picture this week, so I didn't keep it open long, but I loved seeing the sunset reflecting off our neighbor's back windows, plus the moon already high in the sky, peering down through the branches of our ornamental crabapple tree.
As you can see, there is very little fruit left on the bottom branches of the tree. We leave the fruit on there for the deer, who can't browse the prairie grass when it's covered in snow. They're beautiful to watch, the older ones standing on their hind legs to reach higher branches, while the smaller ones snuffle for fruit on the ground.
In a month or so, there will be birds after the higher fruit, and the birds will get high, too, because the fruit will ferment when warmer sunshine starts.
