  1. Here is the story I love about these two old trees, and a plum tree that I didn’t even know was there until I went down to pick the apples this week:

    I don’t know when Daddy finally planted these trees (though I feel certain it is recorded and in a file somewhere), but for years and years he didn’t plant any because, he said, “If we had planted them 10 years ago, there would be apples now.” And so, what was the point in doing it now? But then he planted them anyway–I wonder what changed his attitude–and now there are apples. I don’t know if they fruited before he died or not. I must ask Mama. I tell myself that “it’s ever too late” story frequently, when I am disappointed with myself for not doing something long ago.
