It's CHERRY PIE time!

 
HAPPY SUNDAY MORNING!

While taking a break from power washing the driveway/sidewalks yesterday I glanced out the kitchen window to our 'picnic' area only to realize our cherry tree was FULL of ripe & ready cherries.   So, I grabbed my new iphone5 and walked up to grab a few photos (always impressed at photos people take on their phones and since I finally 'came up in time' and got my first smart phone I had to give it a try)!
 

 These photos were taken while standing inside/under the tree (click on image to enlarge).  Although it makes it a little difficult mowing under, I leave the branches low so I can easily hand pick these beauties!  They are SO SWEET, and since I don't spray any pesticides on them, I love to just 'PICK & EAT' right off the tree.  Being only 5' 2" tall ... that's not always an easy thing to do!  LOL!  Needless to say, all the beautiful berries on the top of the tree become food for the birds since I am NOT climbing up on a ladder to get them!


 Like I said ... this tree is HUGE and I just love it!!  
You can actually sit at the picnic table and pick cherries from it!
And there are cherries all the way to the top ... which isn't even in the picture!

Well I'd better get moving!  I have a birthday card to get created for a party that starts in 2 hours!  Yikes!  Nothing like waiting until the last minute! LOL!
Have a fabulous day ... going into the 90s here in NE Ohio today ... think I'll be staying indoors!

As always ...
