My 33.1 mile drive to work is mostly Interstate and mostly boring. Sorry Meriden, Cromwell, Rocky Hill and Wethersfield. I-91 isn’t your most picturesque corner! Luckily there’s still the first 8 or 9 miles of the trip!
My route takes me up River Road, behind Sleeping Giant and then through Wallingford to the Wilbur Cross Parkway.
It’s sad all winter. The apple trees are bare. They stand silently in neat rows. It’s as if they’re in line at the DMV.
Last week the apple blossoms appeared. It happened quickly. It seems like it happened overnight.
All of a sudden the trees have purpose. I love spring.
It will be a while before these blossoms produce edible fruit. Apples aren’t ready for picking for a while.
I look forward to watching them grow.
