“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  4. Beautiful shot! I thought they were large apples until I read on.
    Have a great week.

    1. When I first spotted them, I thought they were apples also...a crab apple, but they don't have the 'bumps' at the bottom where the blossom was like an apple...and the leaves didn't look like apple leaves, so I had to go out to my friend...GOOGLE and search for 'em. LOL

  5. Gorgeous picture! I didn't know that there were yellow cherries ... wonder if they're tart or sweet?

    1. ...well, I've seen 'em in the grocer's produce here before, but have never tried 'em.

    2. I don't do the grocery shopping, so I'd never seen them before. Can you imagine a cherry pie made from yellow cherries! ;-)

      I'm still watching the re-runs on USA Network. I checked the DVDs of seasons 1-9 on Amazon.com -- $200+. Ouch! But I've seen already how the shows are interwoven ... and now you say that season 9 ended with Duckie's life in the balance? :-o

    3. I know....the DVD's are expensive, but when we did have cable, that and baseball is the only thing we watched...so in comparing the cost of monthly cable charges, the DVD is cheaper in the long run.

      Delete
    4. Oh yes, the DVD is much cheaper ... we watch very little TV other than sports. Unfortunately DH likes to watch any sporting event ... baseball, basketball, football, etc. I don't think he'd agree to cutting out cable. ;-)

      Thanks for the heads up on www.hulu.com. I know what I'll be doing over the rest of the summer! ;-)

    5. I thought I'd miss TV too....but in all actuality, I like it withOUT tv. And, you're more than welcome.

      Delete
    6. Unfortunately, I can only find 5 episodes at www.hulu.com ... from Season 9 (#1, #2, #4, #18, #19). :-( I can buy episodes from iTunes, but it would be less expensive to buy the DVDs (plus watching them on the "big screen" would be much more enjoyable, I'm thinking). ;-)

  6. Rainier cherries look like these and are incredibly sweet. I too thought they were applies until you explained.

    1. ...dunno to be honest...but I can say the birds are eating them. And you know what they say about what animals eat....humans can eat. I don't know who 'they' is tho....'cause I wouldn't try what dogs eat out of a litterbox!!!

  12. Another great cherry photo! I love cherries. They are my favorite of all fruits, and this photo captures them wonderfully. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate that not everyone has Facebook, but I put that footnote on all my comments to get the word out. I will try to remember to leave it off future comments here :) I have a genealogy project of my own going on, so I know how much time it takes! I am presently scanning a very old photo album that my grandmother has so that the pictures will be in digital form, and also so they have a backup. The paper photographs will not last forever! Have a great week!

  15. Hi There, Neither George nor I like cherries... Don't know why because we usually like most all fruits....

    But your word, tart, caught my attention. We had a green apple tree in our yard when I was a child. I loved (still do) green apples---and would eat them even if they did give me a tummy ache. ha

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  16. Nothing more beautiful than summer fruit--all those soft blushey colors against bright green. In your macro though it's the stems that add so much interest and contrast in the photos. Well done, Anni.

    1. ...now that you mention it, I do see a stark difference when I focus on the stems.
