You know it is spring when: Cherries are right around the corner!

Truth: I hate Cherries.
I don't like them alone, frozen, in pie, in drinks or... anywhere! And no, you won't be able to change my mind, so please don't make me try your cherry concoction!

Beautiful Cherry blossoms in March!

But that doesn't mean I don't put my best effort to make delicious cherry treats for the fiance! Living in the Columbia Valley, I am preparing for the gifts of cherries we receive, they come lots at a time from both grape growers and friends and neighbors with cherry trees!

I am thinking I will bake this little number found from! Not being a cherry fan, but they look delish!

Get ready, the cherries are getting color already!!!

Spring is here!

After a long winter of snow, frozen fog creating beautiful ice sculptures from the grape vines, getting stuck in the mud, and mostly being stuck in the office, spring is here and it is not holding back!

Although it can be cold, the sun is usually out! And with the few days in May above 90 degrees have pushed the grapes ahead of the growth seen to this point in the last 5 years! Woohoo! All growers need great news this season, most had to weather a back to back botrytis year (2010) and a powdery mildew year (2011).

2012 is off to a great start! Cheers!
