cup is empty

I had a big post planned about making applesauce from the crab apple tree in our backyard, but it appears on this beautiful Sunday morning that my cup has become super empty.  A mix of little disappointments, change, and the contrast of sunny, windy weather.  Still, the impulses need to be recognized so instead of writing about all the health benefits of uncultivated apples v. grafted trees and explaining that ‘you’ll get used to that gritty, bitter texture, really‘ I just wanted to post a picture of something lovely we saw at the Essex Exposition in VT last weekend.  Look at all those little legs dangling!  Off to fill the cup…
