morning star




as the work week begins I am stalling . wishing it away

before dropping the freshly washed fruit into the canvas bag

the slice reveals a beauty that is always there

especially on a rainy monday morning

I never cut an apple through that way so would you believe I have missed that star-like shape in the centre all my life!

I'm with Joan! It's so pretty. Makes
me want to dig my teeth into a nice
fresh one myself! Beautiful photos.

Judy said...

I too have never done this. I never realized the beauty when an apple is cut like this.

Good Monday morning, Elk ... cloudy and rainy here again, too.
I love how your calm artistic talent comes thru even when cutting your fruit! Have a wonderful week.

That's so interesting! First of all, I've never really felt inspired while I'm on my way to work, but I think I will start my day tomorrow with an apple & a smile. Thanks for this ELK!

So, how did I go through life never having cut an apple this way? Beautiful! Thanks for showing me life outside the box that I am apparently living in!

A good surprise. Kept inside!

I've been mesmerized
by the star
inside each apple
since I was a little girl.
Hope yours was as crisp
and sweet
as it looks:)
