Full bloom! Cherries in 60 days.

It has been an unusual spring. The “Blessing of the Blossoms” is usually planned for mid-May. This year it was cancelled when it became clear that it would be the Blessing of the Little Green Cherries. For once, we can be sure that there will be some local cherries for the Cherry Festival. How many is another question entirely, as the early heat followed by inevitable frost did some damage. Still, it’s looking good out there now. Very good indeed.
