Bent with Apples

“Give me the splendid silent sun with all his beams full-dazzling,
give me juicy autumnal fruit ripe and red from the orchard.”
— Walt Whitman

The orchards along the Columbia River near Wenatchee are burdened with pears and apples.  I had never before seen such fruit-laden trees.

“Apples so red hang overhead, and nuts, ripe brown, come showering down in the bountiful days of September.”
— May Howitt
