This is what happens to some plants when temperatures begin to drop. This time last year the plant looked much different. I never saw any fall color because I had chopped all its branches off. Next year I am hoping for fruit. If it does fruit I am gonna make a tiny apple pie.
There's a rock now in the design. The rock comes from a strange and mysterious creek bed. Here is an older picture of the same tree, before all the chopping and bending that took place in the past two years.
