June 23rd This & That

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Tue Jun 24, 2008 2:27 am

I've spent days picking and pitting cherries, and it feels like I've got many days to go. I pick about 10 pounds per day, and once pitted, end up with about 6 pounds of cherries. Luckily I have a pretty nifty cherry pitter, that works pretty well for the price.







Jackmanii continues to thrive.


Hot Cocoa is now blooming. This rose has survived several winters now. It's a winner.


Front foundation planting.

I'd have liked to help you with your cherries if I could help myself to some as well. I like cherries. *lol* Your flowers are looking good. I like your border boundary. Is it stone?

You certainly wouldn't need that cherry pitter if I had anything to do with picking those cherries. I doubt if they'd even make it to the house!!!! Honey mangoes and cherries are my favourite fruits so don't go buying any mango trees or you could have a permenent resident at yor place. LOL

The front bed is coming along nicely and looking really good. Love the clematis and roses but did I tell you that cherries are one of my all time favourite fruits!!!!! LOL

Thanks all! Eileen, cherries are my all-time favorite fruit too. Cherry pie (with almond extract in it) is also my favorite desert. I always know when I get a cherry pie without that almond extract in it....blah. Luckily my mil alerted me to the necessity to use it in my pies years ago! LOL
