“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Cherries .. (Not) For the Birds
In an attempt to thwart the birds from eating all of the sour cherries, I've gone to extreme (comical) measures. One complete spool of thread has been tossed about-over/under .. tin foil streamers that make a crinkly sound at the slightest breeze .. and my not so scary scare crow has been positioned next to the tree.
I'll update you as to how well this works as the cherries are starting to ripen.
