Sunday Morning Reflections




These ancient apple trees live in a windy place, they are twisted and gnarly, but every spring they bloom. They remind me of an old Swede who lives through the dark and cold winter, a bit twisted and gnarly from a long life. When spring comes you'll find him on a park bench, his head lifted to the bright sunshine. Smiling......

    1. I don't know since they grow wild there, survivors of an orchard from the past I imagine.

  4. Nature has its surprises - an apple tree blossoming in a most unexpected place. During our lifetime, we often learn to expect the unexpected and enjoy it.

  11. Dear Inger, I can see that old Swede just as I can see my own dad sitting on the stoop, gazing at something beyond my ken. Peace.
