About Today’s Photo:

We went over to Boyer’s Orchard in Monkton yesterday morning to pick up some late season apples for making cider. I noticed quite a few apples still clinging to the trees that had been cleaved by frost and freezing. This one had started drying out as well.

    Cleaved: on of those words that make English so much fun. Stick to as a noun or separated as a verb!
