I can tell that it is cherry season

 

     If you look at the picture above, you can’t see it, but off to the left beyond the edge of the picture is a cherry tree.  From the size of it, we believe it to be at least one hundred years old.  The cherries are ripe now. 

     How can I tell without going up to the tree to look at them?  Every single gosh darned bird around has brought cherries to my yard to picnic on them.  I’ve found cherry bits and pits in the waterfall, on the furniture, and in the bird bath.  Need I tell you about the color of the bird poop that’s also everywhere?

     I can’t wait for cherry season to end.  I’m tired of scrubbing the white yard furniture….

  1. You bring back memories – my main one of robins and cherry trees was when the fallen cherries would ferment. That’s when the robins would flock to eat. Shortly afterwards Aunt Edith and I would watch them try to walk. They couldn’t fly, and actually couldn’t walk either – just stagger and fall. Where is a robin AA meeting when you need it?

    LOL! Don’t forget the soused starlings and grackles. 😀
