The Little Apples

Walk through the Dandelions

Graziella and Floradora walked through the dandelion patch…

.

Climb

to the crab-apple tree.

.

.

reach

Floradora climbed up until she could reach the crab-apples…

.

.

windfalls

…while Graziella collected the windfalls.

.

.

Basketful

They picked a basketful…

.

.

lug

…and lifted it together…

.

.

carry

…and carried it…

.

.

munch

…and munched on apples till they were full!

  1. Ah, so she is Graziella? Perfect!
    I hope she enjoyed her little adventure with Floradora. Perhaps Jane might teacher her to make crab apple jelly soon.
    Thank you for another cheery post. You and the Quimper Hittys are truly helping me through a difficult time by letting me glimpse their interesting lives.

    • We check out the base of the crabapple trees every day – there haven’t been many wee fruits, but perhaps enough for Jane to make a very tiny jar of jam…which would suit the Hittys just fine. I am glad you are finding the Quimper Hittys encouraging.

      • Most of our fruit and vegetable harvest has been poor this year but, oh, the John Downey crab apple tree is so full. What a shame Roberta and Mary Not Quite Nifty can’t send you a bushel or two!

  2. The Graziella in my life, my dear sweet Mom, would be tickled with this namesake!!! I hope this wooden brings out the best in each member of the Quimper family and makes them all shine as Mom did everyone she met! Go girl! Work your magic and spread the love of life and all simple pleasures in it ❤️

  3. What a beautiful moments… Once upon a time, I remember, I was in an apple tree garden and picking up some of apples… It was so nice, I ate all of them. And I can say this, I have never eaten an apple like them after then… Thank you dear Hitty Lady, you apples seem so beautiful. Love, nia
