Cherish cherry’s pictures

Spotted a few cherry trees along Evans Road outside Singapore Botanic Gardens.  To my surprise, it is beaming with shinning and juicy fruits but with no birds chirping happily with their fine cuisine.  For that, I have a strong reason to believe the fruits will not taste as sweet as it looks.

Otherwise, birds would not have enough to share it with the worms and the ants would be happily singing and carrying it all the way home.

If not, these strings of ruby gems wouldn’t be hanging there like dropping musical notes, waiting for an artist to complete the beautiful song.

Or else, all these ripe and unripe cherries will be ferry all the way to the supermarket for sales.

Then, today, I wouldn’t be able to have a chance to share them with you and cherish these cherries’ pictures with all!

    Perhaps the birds are waiting for the optimum ripeness? They can get very fussy when there is so much to choose from!

    You must be right. I’m glad that the birds left them for us to see. On to a more tasty supper!

    Hi Sydney, I like your pictures, very nice. Also your header photo is great! Do you make these pictures yourself? Enjoy your weekend! Gera

      Sydney Fong responded:

      Yes, the picture was captured by luck and my lucky canon EOS! I’m so glad you like it, I like to change the header once a month, not because I’m fickle minded, is because I prefer no rule in my rule!
      You too, Gena! You are always my green friend!
      Peaceful weekend! 🙂

      Sorry, I am not sure! 🙂

    these are known to Singaporeans as Singapore cherry /Bajelly tree/Strawberry tree or pros call them Jamaican cherry / Panama berry. I recall picking the fruits of these trees along the road back in the 1970s.
    Sweet and lovely and FOC!!! Not edible for those planted in residential or parks nowadays due to pesticides from fumigation exercises. But those found in nature reserves are good to eat still.

    Blessings
