Its cherry season! A very cheery time of year.
Come on up and sample, I mean, pick cherries in the tree with me!
A pretty little basket just my size.
Then we will set up for a picnic under this beautiful, colorful tree.
I’ll set out the tea things…
(Please shoo away that fly!)
And we’ll both invite a friend…
Let’s celebrate together…
We must get back to work because the birds will soon be carrying away all the cherries they can eat. We want to stockpile enough to can and freeze for the family until next year. It may turn into a race before long! Hurry, hurry!
Let me share a yummy recipe with you. These cherry bars are a quick and easy treat, for when there isn’t time to make a pie.
