We planted this cherry tree last fall.
We ran out to the "orchard" this spring to see if the new tree had flowered.
Then a week or so later. .
we ran back out to see if the flowers had been pollinated. .
every week after that ..
we nonchalantly walked past the tree. .
trying not to rush it ..
nor make it feel like it was being watched.
Last week ..
we licked our lips. ..
and kept walking.
On Monday ..
when grandgirlie walked past the tree ..
she noticed the shiny ruby red cherries and plucked one off the stem . .
and popped it in her mouth.
Being naturally quite selfish. .
we distracted her with the search for the baby field bunnies. .
and today . .
the two of us. .
will return to the tree. .
and pluck the cherries and eat them .
all for now . .
