Last year I acquired an 8' fiberglass apple from my mentor who has grown apples all his life. He closed the "pick your own" orchard and had this giant apple guarding the gate. We have named it Andy and it sits below the fence of my orchard and the ever present grin makes us smile every morning.
We never thought anything about the paint scheme until finding that is was from a Fisher Price children's toy called the Happy Apple which has a chime inside and when rolls always ends upright.

Like the apple! Random question: what is the purpose of the corrugated pipe surrounding the tree trunks? To protect from weed wacking damage?

The pipe keeps herbicide off the trunks when I spray to kill all vegetation and it should protect the trunks from rabbit damage during the winter.
