Ripening cherries

cherry tree June 14

When down here in London in the spring, I often spot the differences caused by the warmer southerly climes compared to where we are back home. In May and June, the biggest difference is the cherry crop. It is about three weeks earlier in London. I've looked at some of the trees here and again, it looks like a good crop. I won't be able to pick them here though as I'm unlikely to be in London soon enough once they have ripened to beat the pigeons to them. Back home however, we are hoping for a significant crop. Cherry pies will be making an appearance in our kitchen soon.
