From Haugesund. With 3 children and a husband who's seemingly constantly away on business, I garden like it could save my life - and it probably does!

Prunus Avium

This is the closest to actual edible cherries I've gotten -ever! The tree is quite old, but in past years it has been overcome by blackfly and I've resorted to cutting back just about everything.

They're looking good this year. Our cherries are just in the ripening stage. We've had to cage them to protect them from the Bohemian Waxwings!

I hope to taste mine before the birds take them @gjones, but since we're away for the next two weeks, I realize I might have taken a bit of a chance leaving them open like that.

Hopefully it’ll be better next year. Two years ago we topped of a tree and last year it didn’t look real good but this year it’s doing great. Maybe trees need a yr. to sort of get re-established. That’s great 👍🏻😊💕

I was really happy with them this year, they even tasted good too. If next year is even better, that would be a treat! @terrimclaughlin

I thought I had killed this cherry tree when I moved it quite forcibly last year. When it became apparent that it wasn't dead, I was sure it wouldn't produce any flowers this year. Guess I should just stop making predictions.

We planted a new one just before the snow came and thought we’d lost it before it started but hey presto, it flowered a few weeks later! 😀
