stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples; for I am sick of love.
- the Song of Solomon, 2:5
There is such a flood of emotion that comes from apples ~ from the beginning, sweet blossoms, to the fragrant baked dessert it ends up in, and every crisp bite in between… it speaks of home, love, sensuality ~
