If Life Gives You Apple Blossoms . . .

Of all the language sources, the loss of nature seems the saddest. A thousand times a day, nature—in the most ordinary of places—has something to tell or show us; something it wants us to touch, smell, or feel; something it wants all of us, not just the overtly artistic, to express.  —Joyce McGreevy

A few days ago I wrote about our apple tree that doesn’t produce apples, but that makes a good go of it every May with its springy blossoms. Well, today I got home from work and my apple blossoms were falling off the tree already! I took a closer look tonight, and even the ruins of these poor blossoms were better than anything else I saw all day:

blossoms I
blossoms II
