Cherries Hung With...

Black cherry trees bloomed a couple weeks early this year in Southern Illinois, and they are pretty well finished at Easter.  Thanks to A. E. Housman, these lovely flowers always remind me of our mortality, but I enjoy taking time to admire the blossoms.

Take a good look and you will also find plenty of these ugly little buggers.  They have really grown since I posted a photo a bit over a week ago.
