November Hedge Apples
I took a hike the day after Thanksgiving on a new trail. It was a quiet and lovely place and there were (of course) hedge apples.
I came back the next day with camera to record the years progression. Most of the fruit is on the ground with a few fallen into shreds
I am particularly fond of the yellow fellow who is the last hanger on.
At the end of the day I did come home with one more beautiful fruit for one more plaster cast for 2009. I am thinking on the logistics of doing a small hedge apple tea pot.

Here he is. Sumo the wonder pig! of the four piggies made in this batch Sumo is the stand out. While I was grinding his feet smooth on the wheel I lost my grip. Sumo then did a somersault on the wheel and bounced to the floor (which was padded) landing on his feet--unharmed! He is now on his way today to Springboro Ohio.
