The Temptation Of Eve

October 8, 2010

Emilia contemplates an apple* in the abandoned orchard at the Samuel Wilmot Nature Area. From the looks of it, prelapsarian fruit** was probably not all that impressive.***

*I know, Eve was probably tempted by a fig, and not an apple, but the apple has kind of stuck in Western versions of the story, and there weren’t any figs around when I took this picture, so.

**If this is what apples look like without agricultural assistance, then I can see why Lucifer went with the fig.

***These were tasty, though. Jasper ate five. We bought Pepto-Bismol on the way home.
