Fruit Tree | Twisp, WA | May 2019
We’re forged by genetics but refined by environment. Take this aging fruit tree, for instance, which has survived harsh winters, searing summers, blizzards and drought. Birds feed above on its buds and bugs. Deer dine below on leaves and sour apples. The tree has somehow tapped into an unseen source and thrives when everything around it relents. Even in stillness, without effort, it provides shade that cools and comforts.
