I'm in my studio today, working on book proofs and looking at these camellias (the cultivar is 'Ave Maria') on my table. These are our yard's first blooms of the year. A sweet beginning, don't you think?
We got our apple tree over the weekend and Andy planted it on Saturday. We wound up with Cox's Orange Pippin. It will have reddish apples and pink flowers. I am very excited to have an apple tree! I think they are so beautiful in every season. Our hammock will go under the apple tree eventually. Hmm. Time to start planning a booklist. "Books to read on the hammock under the apple tree on Sunday afternoon." I'm thinking classics here. . . . Right?
