When I dropped in to the Neighbourhood House the other day, my friend L had this waiting for me on her desk:
How cute is that! I found myself reaching for it with an embracing gesture before I even knew where it came from. Then she told me it's from one of the miniature apple trees which were moved to her place last year. I last featured it in a post when it was at blossom stage. When I queried its size--I expected full-sized apples from those trees--she reminded me that it's in a very restricted environment. I guess so. Nevertheless it's a real red apple. I brought it home as a treasure. I really should eat it, though it seems a pity, really. It's just so cute.
