I just took this photo 5 minutes ago. Every year I wait for this cherry tree, in my back yard, to bloom. Once it does, I know that there really will be Spring. I don't care about easter, lent, vernal equinox, or whatever the Mayans came up with. It's this tree that tells me life goes on.

Well, that and the rhubarb stalks are big enough to pull off and make a pie. Rhubarb pie also means Spring is here.

Thank you!  I'll have to post one next time I bake one.  The next pie is probably apple - neighbor's tree that takes up a big chunk of my yard, and all going to waste!

I saw a picture of your apricot pie that you made! Very yummy! Do you have a picture of your cherry pie?

Martial Epicurus, this is a cherry but is sterile, does not get fruit.  It does have pollen, and is covered with bees in the spring, collecting pollen.  I did get cherries from my other trees, we have several sweet cherries and some tart cherries for pies.

That's a beautiful photo of flowers.  Breathtaking.
