soon


The first cherries of the year are always the most memorable to me. Cherries! I have missed you so. They aren't the most delicious the summer will provide; those are the locally grown ones that show up sometime around the beginning of July, in what will seem like the blink of an eye. I bought some today, shipped here from California and I ate so many I got a stomachache.

Soon, our peonies will be in bloom. I saw some for sale at the market this morning also, but didn't buy any.

Tonight at Cal's baseball game I sat just behind the catcher. I overheard one of the catchers tell a coach from the other team, 'I'm the best player on the team. I got a home run.' Soon, tact and self doubt and other filters will insure that that level of bravado or self-confidence or honesty, whatever, will seldom, if ever be heard.

Again, you leave me pondering another facet of this life. I appreciate it. Good night. Sweet dreams.

I feel the very same way about strawberries and asparagus!

Those cherries look glorious. My mom's peonies (out in DC) are in full bloom, and I wish I had some of my own. It'll be a while before we have truly warm weather here in the upper midwest, though, sadly.

Ah, I have a cherry pie in mind for the weekend. I so love cherries and the season is so short that we have to make the most of them. You've made me want to buy a big bunch of peonies on my way home today as well, one of my very favourite flowers.

We picked the last cherries two days ago.

I share your excitement about the return of cherries! For me, they symbolize summer!!
Know I'll be enjoying them right along with you!
