This weekend, the weather in Ellensburg was really nice. I can say that now because it’s over and I don’t have to worry about jinxing it. And when I say nice, that means NO WIND! A rarity in the spring around here.
Saturday Amy said she wished we had some more fruit trees. After taking inventory of available yard space, we decided we could definitely fit in one more tree, and two at the most. In our back yard we already have two huge old maple trees, an old apple tree, and a young lilac-small now but getting bigger every year. So we headed to the local nursery and picked out one new tree, a little cherry tree.
I know that planting a tree represents hope for the future, and we feel that-looking at the tiny sapling as it stands in the shadow of the mighty maples that were once just tiny saplings too.
But mainly…we are looking forward to those future cherry pies!
