Summer Fruits

My baby backyard is growing up! I have some cherries  on my Northstar Cherry Tree. It only has a handful so far, and they are VERY tart, which apparently is best for pie making..? I do love making pie, so maybe I’ll try it if/when I get enough. I’m a little skeptical though. I like sweet things.

I also have the first (and only, so far) crab apple on my Chestnut Crab Tree! Exciting!!!!

Usual size for these guys is about a golf ball, so it’s almost ready!!

And raspberries will be next:

The hydrangeas are looking good.

And I went to the Arboretum, where they’re having a butterfly exhibit.

It was fun watching them greedily stick their little probosces into the flowers like tiny straws in tiny milkshakes.

    1. Well, it’s more my parents’ labors, since they planted them. I’ve watered them, but that’s it. Mostly Mother Nature’s/God’s labors at this point.
