Daily Dose

From Back, by Henry Green


"They stood side by side once more, looking out through other leaded window panes onto the untidy back garden which was two apple trees, a dump of rubbish, and a tumble down shelter, on top of which sandbags had burst to grow ragwort.  With two hedges, it was all green and black and red, particularly a small crop of red apples half hidden, like sins, by wet leaves, the black branches, and, on the ground, a lush rank grass."

From page 124
