Life in the Slow Lane: I'm having CHERRIES!

I'm having CHERRIES!

Yes! I really AM...and yes, I am very excited! There I was, out watering the garden and as I was standing with the hose at the cherry tree, there they were....three little green 'blobs'!

Mum and dad bought the tree when they were here last year, and I wasn't at all sure we would get any cherries in the first year. I am being a bit obsessive about them and keep checking that they are still there, and wondering when they will start to turn red. I love watching things developing in the garden...nature is a wonderful thing! 

I think you may be hearing more about the  cherries' progression!

Here is the San Francisco layout, which I finished today:

I used the LO for a challenge over at  Scrap Friendzy - the challenge was to scrap on a white background , which for me IS a challenge!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. Love the pictures and good for you on getting some scrapping in today too! I'm also taking Shimelle's class!

  2. Yay, I love cherries!! And I love your layout, too - that bridge is fab! xx

  3. Oh I love your bridge!! Great job on the layout, I'm with you... white is hard for me... give me 5 patterned papers and I can make it work no problem :)
    I LOVE cherries! I eat them like a mad woman during the season... I can't wait to hear more about your tree!

  4. Mmmmm! Cherries! Love all the swirls on your LO.

  5. I love cherries as well...our cherry trees are covered in blossom....but it will be quite a while yet til there's any fruit.

  6. I love cherries and they cost a fortune over here - hope you end up with a nice crop!

  7. :o) I got a kick out of your post title on this one, Alison. Congratulations on the arrival of your sweet little cherries!

    Your layout is great too! xo

  9. Yes, a white background can be challenging. I have managed it a couple of times, but generally go for coloured or patterned backgrounds.
    We have just put in a plum tree - a Victoria, to replace our old one, which died a couple of years ago. I don't know if we'll get any plums this year, but we did have some blossom...eeee!! Good luck with the cherries - keep an eye out for naughty birds who like to steal them!


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
