Garden of Paradise

Uncle Al & Auntie Tee's Apple Tree
Early September & Late October ~ 2015

"The end of summer or start of autumn?
Your favourite apple tree is getting rosier by the day."

The Singing Ringing Tree
Mid - September ~ 2015
"Apples are still going strong,
but autumn is here now for sure."
Thanks to my brother - in - law Alastair for keeping me updated on this mythic apple tree, growing in the center of paradise, over in sunny England! This autumn, Al writes:
"Doing OK, but not as good as last year . . .

Tina's yellow raspberries are doing well though."

Remember Thomas Carlyle's absolutely
perfect quotation for anyone who just
hates to be told "No" -- and who doesn't?
Let me have my own way in exactly everything
and a sunnier and pleasanter creature does not exist.”

And what better location for perfect happiness and soulful communion than in the heart of my sister - in - law's perfectly sunny and pleasant garden! Not long now, and that's where I shall be! I hear the tidings already!
“Does it ever give thee pause that men used to have a soul? Not by hearsay alone, or as a figure of speech, but as a truth that they knew and acted upon. Verily it was another world then, but yet it is a pity we have lost the tidings of our souls. We shall have to go in search of them again or worse in all ways shall befall us."

Thomas Carlyle (1795 – 1881)
Scottish philosopher and social commentator
