Admiring the fruit (again)

Since the Art Ranger is "at large" this Friday and not technologically active, she must offer a re-run of a post that got taken offline by accident.  Perhaps you've seen this and already made applesauce:

Today, instead of Found Art Friday we will take time to chew on an exceptional and humble food.

Whereas peach is a short-lived exciting summer guest, and tomato is month-long flavor extravaganza, the in-season  apple is our steady friend. Yes, apple is there for you - with a bit of in-between sustenance.
Cheerful dispositioned apple has that bright crrunch when perfect, yet not too squeaky and green to cut the gums. Both yin and yang In flavor. The lucky tree apple has the "you are the apple of my eye" excitement of saturated color and fall leaf rattles.
 Time in sun stored up as red; with slightest tug, tree relinquishes fruit to palm.  How does anything use color so well?

The regular imperfection of the home grown apple, fine with disparities in size.
The almost scabskin lived-though-change areas.  Even a small ohwhynot worm.
And fruit doesn't fall far from the tree does it?  Yet some will roll with all that gravity.  

Bringing extra bold deer, who take their time staring back at you while snacking, and large-earred hares with soft feet in the night.  Half-eaten decaying colors enrich hues of seasonal ferment.

You have just the right amount of time to think about something during an apple break.  To chew on it while still fresh in your mind. This "fruit of knowledge" can nourish or cleanse the palette, moving us along for the next big or little job with some zing.  Hmmmm, often involving an Apple computer.
  Have you seen any lots of anythings lately, or even a sun torn scarecrow?
