Still hanging on

      The very depths of winter and still some apples are hanging on despite the lashing from the gales and rain.
      A Discovery maintains a lonely vigil in the top of its tree with new bud growth all around it; you can be sure that it won't be long before the Fieldfares pay it a visit and turn it into a meal.
      Down below the Golden Delicious really are 'golden' and they still make fabulous eating, strangely, one of the terriers loves them and helps himself as he passes on his walks.
      Maybe the colour has something to with the attraction but perhaps not, he pinches tomatoes, raspberries and strawberries too, given the chance.
