I’m unsure if this is typical, but Royal Lee has out-bloomed Minnie Royal by a long shot, but as long as one produces, I suppose that’s the key. Going outside this morning to see these cherries filled me with a calm, inspired satisfaction. I asked for just one cherry and I got many more.
Somehow the chickens seem to know when I need a new picture of them doing something endearing because yesterday they were posing like pro’s. These birds of a feather really do love to flock together. Last week every one of my white Silkies were broody and our sweet Ameraucana Henrietta didn’t leave the coop, not even for a minute, to venture by her lonesome out in the grass which she loves so much. Now that they’re back to their pecking, egg laying-gang status, they don’t leave each other’s sides.
The Minnie Royal Cherry tree has begun to bloom! It’s pollinator sister, Royal Lee, is not quite blooming yet, but I’m hoping they’ll cross blooming schedules at some point to possibly produce some of my first cherries this spring.
