    Thought I would put together a small collection of images I took whilst waiting for our cherries to ripen. A few of these are a little out of focus and or dark purely because the conditions were not the best for taking photos.

    Flower about too bloom. You can see the cherry at the base of the flower bud

    The flower blooms and cross pollenation happens

    Flower dies off as the cherry grows

    Flower completely gone leaving the lone cherry on the stem

    Cherry ripens and is within days of picking. In most of these shots the objects are moving in the wind which made focusing next to impossible so go easy on me if you are going to critique.

    Very nice series, dklod. Right down to the fact that the last one made me hungry for some cherries. Delicious pics. ron

    the real question is who can tie a cherry stem in a knot with their tongue...?

    I can! Ladies, please form a calm and single file line to the right... :biggrin:

    That's a misnomer. And I would think the roles should be reversed.

    Nice series of pics.

    How about I put you out of your misery. This was the first year that the trees were old enough to produce export quality fruit and they did not disappoint. Our largest were over an inch and a quarter in diameter and had a real crunch when you bit into them (they should not be soft). I'll post some pics I took from the top of a roof on the property.
