Cherries, Cherries, and more Cherries!

A couple of weeks ago, I was excited to see the cherries and blueberries coming on my garden. Since then, I've been away and was pretty sure that I would have missed the best part of the season or that the birds would have devoured them all.
To my surprise, today, I went out to find that there are plenty of cherries perfectly ripe and they are absolutely delicious! ! !
This tree has 3 different kinds of cherries grafted in - what they are, I do not know. I do know that I will not be able to enjoy even a 10th of the produce - I have no way of getting up to the top but, that's ok. The birds have wings and can get there easily and I don't mind sharing with them, at all :)

I think cherries are my most favorite fruit. I have to find out if there is a cherry tree variety that is hardy up here in zone three. They're beautiful- enjoy them.

Oh,Lynne! Everytime I eat cherries I will
think of you and hope you find a hardy
cherry tree to plant in your yard. Keep
me posted?
