life is quite literally a bowl of cherries!

look at these beauties....!

as I've mentioned previously there is a certain lane between here and Louth where about 6 or 7 cherry trees grow by the side of the road... it's been weeks but they are finally that perfect deep, dark red colour.... so I'm on my way back from the gym this morning and I just couldn't resist pulling over and harvesting a few... which turned into a few pounds!  I didn't even need to get out of the car... just rolled down the window and reached out, so heavy were the branches with their offerings...

Well... they'd be bird food otherwise and there is simply nothing better than reaping the benefits of natures bounty.... and this is all from one tree, I need to go back today or they'll be eaten, or rot on the tree...

... so here's my dilemma... I just love cherries, so do I simply eat them from the bowl or turn them into something fabulous like a pie?  Oh decisions decisions....
