When it comes to summer produce, cherries are my favorite. The season isn’t very long so I never deny myself when they’re available. Even after being trucked from Washington, the ripeness is almost always perfect.
Access to this fruit is usually over by the end of July but this year it’s still hanging on into August. I’ll keep buying as long as they keep showing up.
Other indicators of the season are these flowers called Black-eyed Susans. These mini sunflowers never fail to attract my attention.
There are annual and perennial versions, though I can’t tell them apart.
Whether I see them in the wild or planted in my neighbor’s yard, I can’t stop myself from capturing a few photographs.
