All the dormant apple trees just starting to feel tiny sensations in their root hairs.. slowly waking to the movement of the sun.. the snow recedes, birds sing, the ice creaks and moans on the lake.. I can feel energy rising in my blood.. it's always the same for me, every spring It happens. I'm 64 years old, Ive been doing this all my life, and I can hardly contain the energy that I wake up with. It really doesn't make any sense.. so much to do, so many things can go wrong, totally out of my control.. yet, here I am again at the beginning of another apple growing season… still here!!
