Apples, anyone?

After living in our house for over 5 years, we learned, just today, that we have an apple tree!  I knew that little tree had pretty blossoms in the spring, and always assumed it was some sort of non-functional fruit tree, but today, I noticed that it has a few ripening apples on it!  They’re quite small, but I tasted one, and it’s not bad.

Fall is coming rapidly to Vermont this year.  We didn’t have much of a summer; it’s been very cool and rainy this year, so things are still very lush, but the colors are starting to change already.  Our hydrangea is so loaded with flowers it can’t keep its head up, and our burning bush is almost completely red.  I haven’t heard the official predictions yet, but my feeling is that our colors are going to be early and spectacular this year!

    They’re pretty sour apples, but eminently “eat-able.” I mow the grass weekly, but still didn’t notice the apples growing there till you pointed it out to me today. They must have just sprung up all of a sudden.
