My friend Susan gave me a box of Macintosh apples from her tree, and a bouquet of tansy. (Thank you, Susan!) These apples looked like no Macintosh I had ever seen in a plastic bag at a grocery store–these were big and looked crisp and bloomed with color. So even before I ate one, I took some pictures. The apples have that indescribable fresh taste of apples right off the tree, tasting like fresh air and all sorts of apple-y nuances.
Then, of course, there’s always an adorable finch.
For all those living in and around St. Charles, Illinois, I want to mention that I have my bird watercolors and other crafts on display at the St. Charles Public Library. The display case is in the lobby, so if you have a moment, please stop on by! Namaste. Fran
