"Apple blossoms are considered a 'perfect' flower because the anthers that promote pollination and the pistons that develop into apples are both located within the same blossom." (via)

I've been thinking of apples because it's mid-September and the weather's been near pristine and that makes me think of Hallowe'en-time during undergrad, when Alex and I would house-sit for one of our professors -- and his wife would always have left us a steaming pot of homemade apple cider with lemon wedges and whole cinnamon sticks.
