DAY 116 (30 JULY) – Apple tree (Malus domestica) (Greater London)
“There were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch,
Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall.
That struck the earth,
No matter if not bruised or spiked with stubble,
Went surely to the cider-apple heap
As of no worth.”
Excerpt from After Apple-Picking by Robert Frost
