The Apple Tree

The prior owners of our house and property were devout Mormons. They emphasized family (4 kids) and home-based activities. So we were lucky to inherit a volleyball court, large vegetable garden, campfire area, horshoe pits and orchard trees and bushes around the property.

Now I wouldn't have assumed that there was any religious purpose to the large apple tree that resides smack dab in the middle of the back yard if it weren't for the painting they rendered on the inside of my bedroom closet door. It crudely depicts this very tree and is accompanied by the following quote: "Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit."

So, I'm pretty sure they planted this tree to represent the Tree of Knowledge or remind them of this passage from Matthew.

All I know is that it really hangs the snow well. Doesn't it?
