Apples and Glass

A moment in the afternoon in my art studio. 

Some call it sea glass when it's found near the sea but I call mine mountain glass.  And an agate in the purple glass and a chunk of amethyst which is enchanting if the sun hits it just right.

On a completely different subject - my neighbor's apples disappeared!  Totally!  When I walked beneath the tree about 5 weeks ago it was loaded with apples.  I decided to wait until they were redder to photograph them.  They weren't home much of that time.  Sometime in there I noticed that the apples were gone.  No, the squirrels couldn't have carried them all away, it was too tall for the deer, in fact the top is too tall for even a very tall ladder.  Tonight I asked her about it.  She had no idea what happened to them either!!  A mystery. 

I hope you've had a beautiful and restful weekend.                     Diane

Love the "mountain glass." :c)

Hmmm... you'd think if someone was picking them, they would not take them ALL? What a mystery!

Mountain glass. I love it! How pretty Diane. And being partial to purple, that's right where my eyes went! Don't you wish you had a camera on that tree so you could see what happened? Strange!

Lovely colours in your photograph, Diane. We call sea glass 'Mermaid's tears'. What a strange mystery about the apples- have a happy week. Jane xx

Diane I have the same blue bottle and I also have a aqua one. Any idea what they were for? Ha, we share bottles!!!!!! and Amanda :)

Maybe someone figured it was better to take the apples than to let them sit there on the tree. Surely that would have been quite a task.

Amethyst is my birthstone. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Great picture! It would be nice to know what happened to the apples . . . but, it's kind of more fun exploring the many theories. xobean
