Not Your Usual Winter Apple

The tree is old and scraggly, and only produces a couple of inedible apples each year.
Still, it hovers over the driveway as it has for the past 40 years or so, getting more gnarled and ugly with each passing year. 
This year, one of the apples dropped onto the driveway, where it was squashed flat by my car.
Into a disturbing and yet somehow intriguing heart!

A Walk Downtown ...

Portland is known as "Rose City".
I don't think they meant the roses should look so ... well, dead.
Oh well, at least it formed a heart for "Guest Heart Thursday"!

And just around the corner was this intriguing building ...

I'm not sure what the most interesting ... the curious placement of the windows on this building, or the even more curious billboard message (stop honkaholism???)!

It's been a while since I've joined up with "Signs, Signs"!
