the black little dots

much to my surprise, i discovered some cherries in our garden. the tree has been there a few years already, but i didn't get around to pick any in the past years...
this year, it was sheer luck, as joel and the boys put up the pool 10 days ago, i came home late afternoon that saturday and it just so happened. taking a look in the garden with it's different colors and seeing the cherrie tree with all it's black little dots....

oh! there are little cherries and just about ripe to pick. the fruit is not sweet but wonderful to make some marmelade. and that's what happened with them, 1kg of fruit cokked into marmelade for next winter!
and this way, i collect color and flavor and joy, for times when those things are scarce.
