These are the most beautiful and tasty cherries ever!  I sure loved them when we had them to pick every year.  That is when the birds did not get to them first.  One year, they were there, and the next day they were gone!  Apparently, it was the same all around for many cherry crops.

The cherries only get better each year!  I don’t live there at the moment, but I am sure the cherries were just as delicious if not better than the years before.  I did make some cherry jam once, and it was delicious!  I gave some to my relatives, and kept some for myself also.

Penny’s Cherries, Redding, California

Beautiful bing cherries, in Redding, CA.
My Moms beautiful cherries from her cherry trees.

The most delicious cherries I ever did taste! These are looking great this year, posted are pictures of years gone by. This year I decided to get to the cherries before the birds do! So we are picking them a little early.

Cherry season is the absolute best! Usually it is a little later in the spring, in northern California. But this year they are at least a week or two early. Shasta county makes wonderful cherries, and other fruit. If you are ever in Northern California, off of Interstate 5 are some wonderful places to buy fresh local fruit and nuts. The best you will ever have!

Flowers and Bees

These lovely yellow flowers are enjoyed by the bees.  I think they are names Cineraria maritima also “Silver Dust”.  The bees really love them and they are usually all over it in the sprint time.
