Monday

tree



The small smatter of blossoms aren't fully opened on the two apple trees I planted yesterday, one on either side of the  pond. And the leaves are little green bundles. Promises of leaves but not quite leaves.  All the same this morning a sparrow settled for a moment in one of the branches and what was the possibility of a tree suddenly became a tree.

Windblown and sodden the tree has now held a bird.
