while the cherries were blooming.
last week and the week before we had an amazing discovery. out dear little cherry tree- that only had a few cherries on it last year and none the 2 years before was in full bloom. it was a cherry wonderland! we made pies, and mash, and phoebe even put some in her 'mixed fruit tart with vanilla custard' and sold them right at the chase's bakery counter! they were lovely. we also gave a bunch away to friends and our dearest duo chuck and jill became a trio over the weekend, after only 3 days and night of labor little isa jules was born into this world. he missed the cherries but ah- there is always next year!
