Ooooo, we have plums. I can’t keep up. I have been making jam and drying plums and I made a plum tart. Now I look out the window and panic because… apples….
I am drying apples. I may make a pie. I may try making applesauce or apply jelly, haven’t tried either before!
I am mostly staying inside, darn it, because the air quality still sucks. Mask outside, even in the car, sigh. Bleagh. No beach walk today.
My wolf river apple tree likes the fence between it and the road.
I took this a few days ago. The tree is preferentially growing toward the fence and the part that is below and behind the fence is in full bloom and gorgeous. The rest of the tree is budding but not in full bloom.
What does it like about the fence? Shelter from the cars in the road? The fence is to the west, so it shouldn’t do much for warmth, but that could be part of it. Maybe it does not like the car exhaust.
Maybe I should extend the fence a little higher in that corner. Just to please my tree….
For Mundane Monday #121. Nice job of camouflage….
so sorry, love
I see my reflection clearly
I see my self
if I had to choose
between your love and knowledge
I still would eat the apple
