"LET THEM EAT CHERRIES!" (but only when I say so)

Nature has made up her mind. And there is no arguing with her. This year there are cherries. Last year, almost none. To make matters worse, our better cherry tree bit the dust last year, leaving only its weak sister, behind. Well, we underestimated all of these ladies, and the tree that we dissed has more than risen to the occasion. Of course, the best ones are at the tippy-top. But let's not be greedy. There's plenty for everyone, including the birds who instinctively know when to come calling for their share:the day everything is at its peak. And if you don't beat them to the punch, no cherries for you! We filled our bowl to the brim, and decided to take our chances about tomorrow. My late mother-in-law to whom we owe our ability to have done this renovation used to love the song, "Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries." We are dedicating this bowl to her, and tomorrow we will see if we end up with just "a bowl" of cherries...or several.
