|...COLORED RED, GREEN...|
|...AND ALMOST EVERY SHADE BETWEEN|
Monday, 8:00 AM. 45 degrees F at the ferry dock, 42 on the back porch. Wind E, calm with light gusts. The sky is overcast, there is fog over the channel, and the humidity is 86%. The barometer is falling, currently at 29.99", and it is raining very lightly.
The above photos of a profusion of windfall apples was was taken yesterday on Old Hwy. K. They inspired the following doggerel:
Of the genus Malus
Grow from Khazakstan to Dallas
Red, pink, yellow, green
and almost every shade between
Eat them, juice them, drink hard cider and get high
But best of all I like them,
in an apple pie
Apples, apples...My, Oh, My.
