A Harvest of Horse Apples


Last fall while visiting a friend in Dallas, I learned about Horse Apples. You can read my original post on this interesting fruit here.


I suppose I'd seen them before, but never paid them any attention. Turns out there is a Bois D'Arc tree near my home. It dropped its horse apples into the street for weeks.


I gathered some up and brought them home to enjoy. They fit perfectly in the antique wooden dough bowl I found while in Santa Fe this past summer.



I had a little fun playing with them in the afternoon shadows.
