My dear apple! You are like us. The shell that decorates and protects you is smooth and rosy in your green years, but later it becomes wilted like our skin. Underneath you are mostly sweet, but sometimes very sour. Your flesh is perishable, but your soul is still alive, a new tree grows from it. You are like life: Whoever wants to enjoy you must be able to grab and bite. You wake up curiosity and make an appetite: Whoever sees you, will taste you. You are like love: fresh and crisp, then always sweeter. You are also like sin: tempting, to hiss, to bite. You are full, but also greedy for more. You are a bit like our earth: round and spherical, but slightly flat on the poles and never so perfect. Your enjoyment keeps us healthy, your aroma lets thoughts fly, poets guard your muse fragrance in their drawer. Your form and color give us the most beautiful comparisons, starting from apple baking. You are juice, must, wine, mus, cake and cream cake. Apple, you're a force! (Author unknown)
...on our tree! A bumper crop! Hooray! After I took this shot, I promptly ate this apple. It was delicious! I love it when the apple tree comes through! Our apples are leetle, but delicious!
I spent most of the day at my parents. Good thing they live close by and will take me in if necessary lol. I had to do some catching up on laundry while I was at their house because we are still dealing with our septic issues and can't run excessive amounts of water yet. Over the next couple of days my backyard will become a greater mess as the new tiles will be put in. I am so done with this nightmare and have been for the last month! It is amazing how much we take for granted our water supply and usage until it is taken away from us.
