never count the old tree out--part 2

a year ago last october I posted  pictures of our old apple tree in the back field:

the tree had rescued itself from firewood status by suddenly sprouting leaves--and eventually produced two apples.

today I went out to take a look at the tree, and found this:

I'd say, by and large, it's doing quite well for an old lady tree,
in spite of the sags and wrinkles and bits falling off here and there,
And maybe, come this October, there will be apples again.
