Choke Cherries

Life is just a bowl of cherries; don’t take it serious, it’s mysterious.  Life is just a bowl of cherries, so live and laugh and laugh at love, love a laugh and laugh and love. ~Bob Fosse

August 17

These wild choke cherries were growing next to a hay field.  The day I took this picture the Rancher taste tested them and the expression on his face was a little sour.  A few days later the birds wiped them out.

    As a girl growing up in Colorado, we picked the choke cherries every year and Mom made the most beautiful and clear red jelly I’ve ever seen. So delicious. Can’t say as I remember ever just eating one raw though. Wish we had choke cherries where I live now.

      What a neat memory of your Mom’s tasty treat.

      The Husband also loves his Mom’s wild plum jelly and sauce. When I took him home to NE he was surprised that we consider plums thickets a weed and cut them down.

    Choke cherries grow here too. Cameron LOVES them! OMG! They are a little to bitter for me. You do have to get to them before the birds. 🙂 They are a beautiful plant!

    We don’t have those around here, they are lovely! Too bad the birds got to them before you could pick some. 🙂

    I can only imagine the expression! And thanks for your comment on my post last week – I have to tell you, I was the CED in the Buffalo Co. FSA office in 2010-2011 so when you said you grew up there I thought that was a neat coincidence! (By the way – they have a wonderful set of fairgrounds and a fabulous 4-H program there!) Tell your husband when he figures out how to answer the doctor about reducing stress, I’d appreciate it if he’d let me know. Sometimes they just don’t understand what all is involved with the whole ranch life thing! Lol. 🙂
