A small stone from the Similkameen

The first cherries....
sweet and firm and
luscious in their rich red ripeness

Should we wonder at the early morning birdsong?

  1. The birds and I are both singing, Hildred - I'm eating them by the fistful now - so sweet and crisp.

  2. Wonderful stone.

    I have lots of birds in my garden that sing throughout the day. I also have several red currant bushes and make sure to leave a few ripe berries hanging for them (my thank you for their beautiful voices that serenade me).
