so what's happening in your yard?
mine's been full of spring loveliness
weeds 'n' things
it looks like we're in a for a bumper crop of cherries again this year
we have two cherry trees: a sweet one and a tart one
the sweet one usually gets worms (we don't spray)
but the tart one never does... go figure...
the branches get mighty high and can be hard to reach, even with our big ladder
I'm not afraid of heights but I am of falling
does that even make sense?
anyway, a couple of years ago I got myself a bright idea
as I stood on the top of the ladder, looking at some laden branches, just out reach
the tree needed pruning...
I wanted those cherries...
so, I cut off the branch,
carefully carried it down...
and parked myself on the bench, branch on my lap, and picked the cherries off at my leisure
the neighbours didn't quite know what to make of it...
it gave "cherry-picking" a whole new meaning!
and in a random way, I was rooting around in some of my needlework today and found this
it's a sampler by Shepherd's Bushyet to be framed
I love the verse though... so true for all of us, don't you think?
a simple thread connects us all
and brings us such joy
have I ever told you how much I love needles and thread?
