Crab Apples in May
In May, I could not resist this photo of one of our crab apple trees out my kitchen window.
Crab Apples in October
So, with today’s Daily Create prompt:
#clmooc #DS106 @ds106dc #tdc3924 #writeout See It and Sketch It— out my windowDaily Create 10.11.2022
I choose to draw it as it is now, filled with crab apples for the mule deer. We daily shake the tree so the apples fall to the ground, and we cannot park our cars beneath the trees, because the deer stand on the vehicles to stretch to reach the apples!

And Crab Apple Poetry
And so, a poem– about Crab Apple Delights
Crab Apple Delights
In spring, so bright
blossoms of pink
In summer, a sight
leaves of deep green
In autumn, fruit bite
mule deer delight!Sheri Edwards
These posts are part of WriteOut: a joint venture of by the National Writing Project and the National Park Service to encourage people to get outdoors. This year’s Write Out is STEAM- Powered (STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) from October 9-23, 2022. It’s free. It encourages writing and making and sharing about your own experiences with the outdoors in a local event, on your own, or with the Write Out activities you can find here.
This year– besides encouraging people to explore local parks and public spaces through place-based writing– writing about the places and spaces you visit. Notebooks or field journals or lab notebooks — the first tools a scientist uses to observe, describe, illustrate, and annotate the objects, events, and places they study — will help inspire your writing, whether it is a labeled sketch, a poem, an essay, a scrapbook of annotated photos.
Follow along on this WriteOut journey on my education blog: What Else WriteOut where this post is also part of that blog.
