My son and I made a quick reconnaissance mission to check out the state of our favourite Cherry trees, it's always good to be well prepared. Cherries are always the first fruit that we pick each year and it is always a totally tasty treat when something that was sour last week, bursts onto your tongue with flavour filled sweetness.
Most of the trees were looking healthy with fruit near to ripeness, but annoyingly we found that the birds and squirrels (our fruity competitors) were also already checking them out. We planned excitedly to get back the next weekend, in an attempt to beat our avian foe to the fruity booty.
We did find one tree, one of our favourites with exceptionally large Cherries, with mainly ripe fruit so we hastily set about picking as many as we could reach and quickly filled a couple of big containers to bring home. 
The next weekend, we returned to the trees, the birds had been busy but we still picked a couple of good containers full to bring home for the family. We have been greedily stuffing our faces with juicy Cherries ever since. 
 There are still lots out there, for those prepared to look and friends of ours recently located a big tree, full of ripe free fruit, near the airport train station.
