The beginning of harvest

Morello cherries glowing like jewels. They are unbelievably luminous - I spent ages just sitting looking at the fruit, when I was supposed to be harvesting. Two plants = 2.6kg one, 0.6kg the other. And that's the extent of the morello gathering for this year.

If you look very closely at these sweet cherries you can see my reflection! Well - if you had the original hi-res image you could.

Heavily laden bee in the chestnut catkin. I spent ages trying to photograph the very busy bees, but they wouldn't stay still long enough! There were millions of bees in the lavender - but they had nothing in their pollen pockets.
