I know I haven’t posted much lately, my mom came out for a visit and we have been super busy doing fun stuff and enjoying summer!
Yesterday, my kids and I had the opportunity to go cherry picking! A dear friend has an enormous cherry tree in her backyard and was generous to let us come and pick as many as we could carry!
I have never seen a cherry tree when its ripe for harvest and I was struck with just how beautiful it is! Everywhere we looked there were branches heavy with crimson berries just waiting to be picked!
I asked my friend how she kept the birds from eating all her cherries. She told me they have a deal: they are free to eat as many as they can off the top, and the bottom is hers. And it’s worked for years! 🙂
We had a lot of fun and I can’t wait to try making some things with all these delicious cherries! I am so grateful to my friend for sharing her bounty with us!
Did you know that cherries are a natural treatment for inflammation?
