One Response to Apple Tree in Garden the Day I Left for Minnesota

  1. Aloha Lloyd,
    Love your blog and the beautiful photography. I have been a closet small house afficiando for many years and appreciate the simple life that you speak of. Come to Hawaii. It is always warm here although sometimes wet. Life is good and peaceful and there are always things to do outdoors, including growing your own food, catching fish and hunting for pigs. Neighbors are kind and there is reciprocity cause there is so much abundance not only the food kind from the garden but also from the spirit. Me Ke Aloha Pumehana. Ruth
