I hope there will be a chance to see the apple flowering when it happens next?

Much of the feminine spirit of it appears to be in the expectation or memory - if one has it - of its blush of flowers, not unlike the memories of an old lady's 'spring' [particular thanks for the comparison - it should be worth a verse or two, just not my awkward kind!].

If this wasn't the case with much of critique, then art appreciation would be a much lonelier place. Glad to have heard your say and all this.

At least for me, much of the fun comes with the words a good while after any gut feeling has settled. I'd bet I am not alone...
