I have cherries

I have been down the garden and the cherries are nearly ready.  I am getting ready to pounce and intend to pick the riper ones a little later on as normally the birds manage to snaffle the lot. They usually ripen whilst we are at work. The variety is called Stella it was sold to us on a dwarf rootstock, but something has gone terribly wrong and its massive.  Will have to drag the little ladder down the garden a bit later too muggy at the minute and at least that way I will get some cherries.  Will probably bottle them in a syrup they are a nice bright red and yellow cherry not a purply wine coloured one, but all the same cherries.  The one or two I have had this afternoon taste very nice.

Just hope I get there before the pigeons do.
