Flowering sour cherry tree - double pleasure



This is sour cherry tree growing in my garden longer 10 years. First pleasure - wonderful grace and beauty while flowering. Second pleasure - delicious confitures for winter. When it's cold and dark outside this confiture is great reminder of summer. Not many are able to eat its fresh sour fruits, but they are best for baking and cooking. And are full of antioxidants.
Sour cherry tree is self-pollinating and 1 tree is enough to get lot's of cherries.
I bought on Friday white geranium and placed it on the table - deliberately? No. Coincidence? How? Matching great.

Sour has its own sweetness I think. Like mango too, very sweet when ripe, but equal pleasure can be derived if we consume them young.. definitely sour. A pleasure taking them with chili souce... Rojak, locally known here.

The cherry blossom looks beautiful. And I think sour cherry makes tastier jam than sweet cherry. Definitely a reminder of summer during the winter!

What a lovely picture. I can just imagine sitting under that tree with a cup of tea enjoying the garden.
