Cherry baby, come out tonight

Spring is one of the, wait for it, Four Seasons. Rim shot. You may remember that last year was a lousy year for fruit. We had no apples on our trees and peaches and cherries were rare. Well, this year seems back to normal. The blossoms have been abundant and now we're seeing the fruit.

Young cherries just starting to ripen.

Our apple trees are covered with little apples and the peaches, plums, and cherries that grow around the neighborhood are looking good. Maybe we'll be able to pinch a bit here and there. There are some trees that don't seem to be harvested so sometimes we get some of the fruit before the birds do.
