Foraging for Cherries
Last week I sorta-kinda got my chance. We were walking the dog at dusk past the house with the cherry tree. In the diminishing light I noticed that the cherry tree had been heavily pruned. The branches, laden with fruit, were laying in a pile at the curb. We quickly walked the dog home and returned with the car, squeezing the awkward branches into the trunk of our old economy sedan.
Meanwhile, another seemingly neglected cherry tree has caught my attention. I wonder if I'll be knocking on any doors?
