"Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest."

Cherry season.....

It is cherry season in Holland! I celebrate with a pinkeep I stitched a number of years ago combined with a bowl of cherries.....

"When I sound the fairy call,
Gather here in silent meeting,
Chin to knee on the orchard wall,
Cooled with dew and cherries eating.
Merry, merry,
Take a cherry;
Mine are sounder,
Mine are rounder,
Mine are sweeter.
For the eater
When the dews fall.
And you’ll be fairies all."

~ Emily Dickinson

Heerlijke kersen, heb er vandaag nog van gesnoept.
Mooi bijpassend borduurwerkje en versje.
Fijn weekend, groetjes

I love cherries, but I haven't seen too many in the produce sections this year. They are usually so expensive, but for a seasonal treat I'll splurge. Your display with the cherries and pinkeep is charming.
