Snowy Crab Apples

1217131511Snowy afternoon.  Melissa tells me we’re in the middle of an ‘Alberta Clipper’ – lots of fine snow on a cold day.

The crab apple tree behind the Temple has been filled with robins all day – dozens at a time.  They gobble the dangling frozen fruit like endurance athletes sucking down energy gel and, miraculously, stay alive.

I put on long underwear and drink my tea from a cup with no handle—watching the cold beauty from the warm side of the window.
