Past Their Prime

Apples.  Nikon D7000
1st March 2014

Unfortunately our apple trees seem to have an issue with brown rot; many of the fruit have to be used really quickly otherwise they go brown and mushy.

The problem is really erratic in that some apples even rot on the tress, while others can stay pristine for months and show no signs whatsoever.

These fellows had a few signs of problems but then got forgotten unfortunately; some of the fruits succumbed quickly, while others only seemed to partially decompose.

I have managed to use up quite a few kilos of them this year, although some of the ones I froze I am still using from two years ago!

Today is also of course St David's Day: we have no Daffodils in flower in the garden yet again.  I did hope that as the Winter was so mild, one may grace us with its presence.

Dydd Gwŷl Dewi Sant hapus!
