Fruits of November

Orange Fruit, Crabapple Tree

Fruits of Autumn ©2012 Bo Mackison

Crab apple blossoms are a favorite, but the fruit of the crabapple is largely ignored. Even the winter birds wait until little else is available before choosing crabapples for their breakfast.

But these bright orange crab apples, framed in a purple-saturated sky – I love this combination of colors, and I love the composition of branches and fruits, solid and yet airy.

Space for breathing deeply, roots for grounding deeply.

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.
