    2. I heard the peaches and apples were hit too. The fruit may be scarce around here this year. Blueberries are supposed to be ok tho. I'm glad I canned a lot of peaches last year. :)

    6. here is the quote is perfect for cherries LOL

      "Happiness is a bowl of cherries and a book of poetry under a shade tree"

      Delete
    7. I love that quote. Sometimes you see just the first part, but I like the whole thing with the book and the shade tree! :)

      Delete
    8. Yes I love this part too, a book is perfect these day the most great company for me are the books Betsy:)

      Delete
    9. You know, I never take the time to read! When I do, I love it, but I'm usually busy with other things! I'll sit under the shade tree and eat the cherries and you can read the book! lol...

    10. Well smetimes I dot have the time too, I read in the bus and the subway, you cant cause you drive LOL:)

    11. Finally I think is because I was a really timid child and I begin to read early so all my life the books were the best for me, I love work in Lybraries (at school) and when I work at University times ago I was lucky because I had access to amazing lybraries with book in english and spanish I love to read in both. So is the best for me:)

    12. I bet that's why your english is so good, too! :)

    1. just remember they have a pit
      don't pop them in your mouth like a grape
      or you will be throwing a fit
      when your tooth falls out leaving a gape!
      lol.

      Delete
    2. Hmm I would have popped them in too
      Good warning from you
      Think I'll stick to the grape though
      Just so no holes in the teeth show

  19. That looks really delicious, I think cherries are my favorite berries. That rhymes well too.;) I am not sure they are considered berries or fruit.;)
