The other day, I posted some photos of Avila Beach covered in apples. This was the result of a flooded orchard that had been stripped of its fruit with the resulting debris washing up on the beach in the same manner as seaweed.
We were back at Avila today and I noticed something equally odd. I found a different apple orchard that had flooded, but instead of taking the fruit, the water had removed all the leaves from the trees, but left the apples on the branches.
This produced the very odd scene shown in these photos I took. Rows upon rows of trees with only the fruit remaining. It was so funny looking, almost like they were decorative topiaries instead of living plants.
