A for Apple

A for Apple… that was my first step into English language! But till last week had you asked me to identify an apple tree from group of different kinds of trees I would have failed miserably. Not any more.

Kufri trip took me back to those childhood days when I had pestered my mother to show me an apple tree. She was my google those days, but then we were in Trivandrum; the southern most tip of India, where the climate is hot and all one can see are the tall coconut trees. The urge to see one got submerged in mind under the deluge of information that flowed in to my mind after taking that single first step.

Tiny apples…

Bark of apple tree…

Life does throw you surprises and present to you situations where your inner desires get fulfilled! I realised this when our bloggers group zeroed in on a hill station as destination for the trip. Even during the plan’s formative stages I didn’t dream of seeing an apple tree, then one thing led to other and just before the trip I happened to see the pictures of apple tree blossoms which Hitchy shared.

And then I was sure!
