On the broken, dry-bones parasol
of last year's Queen Anne's Lace
A twiggish damselfly
In my lazy-man's potato patch
(where I simply broke the sod with a shovel,
tossed down seed potatoes,
and covered them all with leaves)
a few plants are pushing up through.
Our Jonathan apple blossomed this year, but doesn't look like it set much fruit. So when I saw a Macoun tree for sale I bought it to keep the other company. If they bloom at the same time next spring (and cross-pollinate) they should be happier and appleier.
