Simple Things....

...our little cherry tree was just bursting with cherries and we couldn't wait for them to get ripe enough to pick. The branches were so heavy with cherries that the tree was literally almost doubled over:and then....over night, they were gone in a flash! All because of this little gal:

...and the fact that it was broad daylight and we were all {Ozzy & Lita, too} watching her out of the window, didn't even seem to bother her in the least. She just munched away on the last dangling cherries and then trotted off into the forest, after turning and posing long enough for me to take her picture. So now I'm down to a couple of strawberries, 2 peach trees, 8 blueberry trees {that I'm sure will be "picked over" soon enough} and an herb garden that is totally out of control. So we just threw in the towel and went on a hike. Like I've said before, it's the little things that count the most anyway. And at least our fruit trees are benefiting somebody, if not us...I'm not that crazy about cherries anyway :O)We hiked up to "Wintergreen Falls" in Dupont Forest and it was absolutely gorgeous and just what I needed to "de-stress", after almost two weeks of waiting for my computer to be fixed. If you want to see all of our pictures, you can click on Wayne and it will take you to "Flickr" ~ enjoy. There were also some gorgeous bright orange wildflowers growing up there, too:
I hope you had a wonderful week! Happy Friday!!!
