Snow and cherries!

by June
The third blizzard of the year is whooshing around our windows. And we are eating cherry pie for breakfast. Eating cherry pie has many pleasures, not least the crunch of the sugared glaze and the tartness of the cherry zinging out of the sweet sauce. My favorite pleasure this morning, though, is remembering the July day we picked the cherries at our favorite farm.

I can't cut you a slice—as much as I wish I could. But I can share these memories of blue skies and glowing fruit and grass so green it throbbed.

Summer itself seems baked into a crackling crust on this day when everything is white—the sky, the ground, the wind itself. To remember the colors of summer is as sweet as the pie itself.

Those cherries hardly look real, they are so brilliant. And your description of eating pie for breakfast made my mouth water. It's wonderful to capture a bright bit of summer in such a broadly nourishing way.

Ole Man Winter is doing a number on us too here in RI. We have ice today...ugh. The snow I can deal with, the ice, not so much.

Thanks for the much needed look back at blue skies, sunshine, cherries and those beautiful girls.

Hugs to you all.

It always seems miraculous that we will see scenes such as these cherries again.
You're having a hard time this winter. Our December snow and ice hasn't been repeated yet, tho we will get a quick blast of snow tomorrow. Then rising temperatures again.
I now long for cherry pie for breakfast!

Well, unlike you, we're blessed with fabulous weather for mid-winter...however, we have no cherries. Those look fabulous, and I can't wait for our cherry trees to set some fruit! Cherry pie for breakfast sounds wonderfully sinful!

Oh wow, that cherry tree at your favorite farm is lovely! Looks like a fun trip to pick your own cherries. That pie looks scrumptious as well. How fun to eat pie for breakfast!

Cherries are just about my favorite fruit, and your photographs are just gorgeous. Not to mention yummy. I love pie for breakfast.

Oh! Those cherries are making me drool! I wish I could taste them!

The colors of summer are so vivid on this blustery day. I have cherries from our tree's in the freezer. You have inspired me...

My goodness, those cherries just GLOW! Love the picture against the blue sky.

Thanks to you (and a cherry jam post) I now own a vintage cherry pitter, and am very well prepared for sour cherry season. Now if I can just distract the robins.
