Weatherwise, we’ve just had a pretty much ideal weekend. Warm enough to spend most of our time outside but not so warm that no-one wants to do anything. Perfect gardening weather, in fact, which is why all of the nettles around the house have now been pulled. And, since it’s spring, the strawberries are starting to emerge, the blackberries are blossoming and there is even some fruit on the cherry tree.
None of the cherries are ripe yet, of course, which is why we can still see them. I’m sure the birds will be along soon.
We’ve had the cherry tree for several years now and every year I promise myself that I will beat the birds and treat myself to a home-grown cherry. Maybe, just maybe, this year will be the year.
Probably not, though.
