Comments: I was quite the swinger in my youth and always wanted an apple tree in the back yard. Instead, we had a Weeping Willow, which made for lousy swinging. Grandmother finally gave Dad a wonderful apple tree, but it was too late to be of any use to me. This image is one of what I wished I could have had, rather than what I did have, which was a clothesline, from which I was forbidden to swing, but did anyway, and eventually fell and broke my arm, as my mother predicted I would. Dreams die hard!
