A bit of green against the whiteout

A superfulous picture with colour in it from the summer. It is of my young Evans cherry bush / tree being a bit overrun by grandpa's mint. That's Munstead lavender in the foreground. If you look really closely, you'll see the cherries developing but don't blink or my kids will eat them before you can glimpse them again.

It's lovely. It won't be long now until spring, I promise. ;-)

oooh those are big cherries! Are they sweet or sour? I'm jealous - we can't grow them here because of disease.

They are between sweet and sour. Sweet enough when ripe to eat out of hand but nice cooked as a sour cherry.
