So the subject of my post today is CHERRIES. My all time favourite fruit and we now have a cherry tree in our garden. It doesn't yet rival the huge black cherry trees I remember from my childhood growing up in Germany but this year it has a great crop. Here were the cherries a couple of days ago ....so far so good.
A couple of very gorgeous hot, hot days later and cherries are ripening nicely....
Almost there I think. Every morning I nip out across the still dew soaked grass looking for big fat juicy black cherries. But alas the past two mornings I have noticed this.....
......PIPS on STALKS!!!!! I think that may be where my ripe black cherries should be. I am obviously not getting up quite early enough me thinks but I have a little plan. I am going to check my cherry tree tonight ;-) and unlike the cheeky cherry stuffed birds I WILL leave them a few! How clever is that though to eat all the cherry and still leave the pip attached to the tree. I'll let you know if my plan works!
So where is the crafting today I hear you ask.....well I am working on editing a new item for my shop that has been greatly interrupted by the glorious weather so I can't share that yet so to prove how much I love cherries I am re posting this photo of a tag I made using the first piece of Graphic 45 paper I bought which was to prove the beginning of a non edible passion.
I also have this paper in the cover of my iPhone. Gotta love this retro cherry paper strangely called Bees Knees?????
One more cherry share:
Cherries and cupcakes - win, win. Well that is all from me for today. Better get back to the editing and voice overing but I want to share this fun video first that is definitely worth a watch if you are in need of a chuckle. I definitely recognise that the lovely Linda who made this video is a kindred spirit. She is fab.
So thank you to Linda for making me smile (I think this video will go viral in the crafting world) and thank you to you for popping by. Enjoy your day wherever you may be.
