Just another critter in our back yard. We are covered up with birds who are all waiting for the cherries on our cherry tree to ripen. When they do - they will be eaten up in one or two days.
It's hard to tell from this picture, but the limbs are actually bending over from the weight of the cherries. We have picked some in the past, but because we haven't sprayed them for bugs and worms a lot of them have "indwelling spirits" - if you know what I mean.
Unfortunately, they will turn ripe while we are out of town and unable to pick any even if we wanted to. This morning, after I mowed the yard, I was just amazed at how beautiful the whole tree was with the cherries sparking in the morning sunshine.
