The leaves are now almost all on the ground. But there are still a few apples clinging to the trees. They'll be gone, too, in a short time.

Holding on for a while longer.

This, one of five apple trees in our yard, is often the last to lose its leaves, not to mention its fruit. They're not apples that we eat because they're rather small and very tart. In the fall they turn from green to yellow -- maybe that means they're better to eat? I don't know.


  1. I bet you could still find something to do with those apples. I think if I had an apple tree i would try to figure out a way to make calvados, which, as you can see on Ken's blog, is my favorite cold and wet weather drink. Of course, I have no idea what kind of apples are used to make it.

  2. dan, calvados is my favorite, too. But Ken tells me it's illegal in France to make one's own.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
