Fine Family

You may remember, I work next door to a wonderful horse farm. This foal and her mother keep my eyes busy all day.

 

Ironically yesterday I showed an apple tree and talked about an abundance of apples. You all know about the big beautiful apples at the top that no one can get? Well we had a terrific wind and rain storm on Monday night. We got 70 mm of rain and very heavy winds.  I lost half of my two trunked, largest apple tree and you would not believe the wonderful apples I got still hanging on the tree which is lyingon it's side.  A friend and I got 6 bags in ten minutes. Of course I delivered some this morning to my work people. Totally organic, perfect, huge apples are a treasure. My workplace lost a tall Norway maple tree, one of four in a row that we talked about removing just last week.

She is a sturdy-looking mare, Mary.

Apples, fresh off the tree, are wonderful...I expect you work friends were delighted, even if PEI is presently drowning in apples.
Mary MacADNski: I have some people dropping by. There are so many.

Sorry that your tree has been so damaged, but I love the outcome - the storm, if it had to happen, was perfectly timed, and even saved the cost of the removal of the maple
Mary MacADNski: In two days I have learned of (and seen) many downed trees. It is so sad.

The foal is snugly tucked up
Mary MacADNski: She sleeps in that area every morning around the same time.
Très jolie photo de famille.
Mary MacADNski: They are truly lovely.

That;s an awful lot of rain! Was they from the remnants of Hurricane Matthew? Sometimes high winds in the UK are from an ex-hurricane. I like the bed that the foal has; mum is there to keep an eye on it.
Mary MacADNski: It passed us dropping 30 mm of rain in the west and 70 mm in the east were I am. Across the water from here is Cape Breton, part of Nova Scotia and it got really drenched as did Newfoundland, after leaving here. Both had serious flooding. We did not at 70 mm.
The foal looks very snug Mary. To think I have been using a ladder to reach my top apples when all I needed due was cut the tree down.
Mary MacADNski: It is unreal, another ancient apple tree. This is the fourth in 32 years. There have been 3 other trees too, that are not apple trees.

Always a shame to lose trees in a storm, especially productive ones!

Lovely equine family photo.
Mary MacADNski: This was a favorite tree of mine in a way as it was the 'border' tree.
the mum is well built and the younger one is a bit shy, Mary. sorry about your tree.
Mary MacADNski: The young one is asleep and not at all shy. Thank you about the tree but it is being used.
My mouth is watering thinking of those apples. You are on the same theme as Graeme today
Mary MacADNski: Yes, I mentioned that to Graeme. Oh, the apples, so good and I am eating a ton of them.
You guys got socked, I see... still, when the apple tree falls, there is no sense in wasting them...
Mary MacADNski: I have people coming by daily for bags of them.Our socking was not forecast at all. I think the weather people were on vacation for the long weekend.
