New Year, new shoots

A fruit tree  in the field next door was somewhat mercilessly ‘pruned’ (massacred!) a few months ago.  One could feel the pain.  But, encouraged by the mild weather in the second half of 2014, the tree has valiantly fought back and has produced a prolific number of sturdy, burgeoning young shoots that, in a chaotic way, form an attractive spectacle.   This picture is really an act of celebration!
