Life's just a bowl of cherries...



We've been busy working with some of the summer's bounty. Aren't those cherries just beautiful? And sooooooooo tasty! We made 6 batches of cherry freezer jam. And the rest of the cherries we froze for pies and cobblers. Three of the boys did all of the picking and the girls and Grandmother helped me with the seeding. It was light work with so many hands.


Grandfather cut down the big Elm tree from the front yard. Here on the prairie, we hate to cut down a tree- there are so few that can survive the winds, but this one fell victim to a big gust of wind a few weeks ago and it was so pathetic looking... it just had to go. It'll make good firewood, this winter. John was playing among the fallen limbs and yep, he fell on his face. Kooky kid. He'll survive.

What kind of cherries are those? They look gorgeous! Just like my sink of strawberries the other day (minus the slug). Yummy!

Mmmm...they are gorgeous, indeed! I would bet that your house smells of sweet summertime bounty!

Poor John. He and my broken-bones-girl would make quite the team, wouldn't they!

Glad you're enjoying your company! What good times to share!

Love you bushels!
