The apples are happy this year, all of them are blooming like crazy. The bees are buzzing and the birds are making some nests. One of my favourite places to sit is under the apple tree, it smells good, sounds good, and looks good. What's not to like.
Apple Blossom Buds and Bark/Lichen, I love this contrast between the soft blossoms and leaves and the tough, scratchy licheny bark. Once a texture phreak, always a texture phreak, right?
Maybe this year I'll even do something with the apples besides just eating a few. Apple butter or jelly or pies even? I don't like pies myself, but my family does (of course).
