The old apple tree in the garden had once again flowered and while new life had begun, for the family there was also a flood of good memories and a time to pay homage to God’s creations.
about the author
I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.
What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.

Wendy tells about her journey and how from a small child she loved and did all that she could to protected an apple tree that she planted and nurtured from a sapling. All living things need to be loved Wendy said. I for one agree wholeheartedly.
