ocy50-inDecember 18, INDOORS:  After a long season of hard work everyone slows down as the holidays come on.  But pruning will start in January and Jacques is taking the tools apart to sharpen all the blades. Both trees and humans do better with smooth, clean cuts.

December 21, OUTDOORS: Late afternoon on the  year’s shortest day. Loud clouds of crows collect in the tall trees around the orchards, as they have most days recently.  These big gangs migrate south, though a good few other crows stay through winter.  Why a picture of crows? Because the orchards look about the same as last week and no people are out there doing anything.  LDS
