oil sands

He was hungry; he was ready with strike-through.
exposed to the wind; an apple-tree barking.

Outside the house, the topiary of willow-leaved pear, his wife shaped with clippers.

with the elements of fortune and ours.

[Sort sort of flat-topped Japanese cherry (I'm guessing 'Shirotae', but I won't know till next year), with numerous holes in the leaves, illuminated by a pub spotlight.  N. Swindon 19:37 on 9th October 2015.]
