I have a true story to tell you. A few days ago, I realized that I had not eaten any cherries this year. I panicked. I wondered if I had completely missed cherry season because I’ve been so distracted by the blueberries and the peaches. I grabbed my shopping list, wrote “Cherries!" and hoped that I wasn’t too late.
And thank heavens! Fresh cherries, so plump and shiny and perfect, are still elbowing the peaches and blueberries at the market. I brought home a two-pound bag of fresh cherries last night and immediately adjusted my dessert plans to include cherries. Because when it’s high summer, we have no time to waste. We must make time to eat cherries before it’s too late.
So that’s my story. What goodies have been filling your fruit basket lately, friends?
Above is the sunset I saw last night. Lovely, isn’t it?
