Musings, impressions, poetry, pictures and everything else about my experiences in gardening, especially as I learn about taking it to a new level.

Our apple trees are not yet big enough to give us a crop of apples, but one of them does have a crop of something... baby birds. This nest is perfectly nestled in the crotch of a Freedom apple tree that looks to have been made just for that purpose. Above, you can see all five of them, mouths gaping for yummy worms.
Below is a close up of two. I don't know what got in the way, but you can see them pretty well.
And one final photo. Aren't they precious? I don't know what kind of bird they are, as mom and dad stayed away while I was in the area.
