Picking Cherries and More Flowers

I have a cherry tree in my yard, called a North Star cherry tree.

The cherries began to ripen in early July, and Mom and I picked some together.

Mom made a jar of jam with some of the cherries, as well as a cherry crisp.

They're a tart cherry, but I enjoy eating them fresh. The tree is now almost bare of cherries. Mom and I picked a big bowl full of cherries a few days ago. Mom pitted them and they are now sitting in a bag in the freezer, waiting for a pie or something like that.

And here's an update on what else is growing in the gardens.
