Winter cherries

At the moment I am totally loving cherries.  Cherries in Winter.  So very very awesome.  I do not care that they are from America and have no doubt been covered in chemicals and cold packed and whatever to get them here in good condition.  They are cherries.  And did I mention that I am getting to eat them in Winter?

This is a first for Perth.  Never before have I seen cherries here at this time of the year.  I am devouring them almost every day.  MR and I went through almost a kilo of them one evening.  He loves them just as much as I do.

It did make me think of the poor people in America who don't have cherries at Christmas though.  Imagine having Christmas without watermelon, mango, stone fruit and cherries??? How strange would that be!

I'm joining in with Paisley Jade for Things I'm Loving... for the first time!

I can't imagine Christmas without cherries either. Pre-breakfast we always found and ate the cherries and chocolate in our pillow cases (No stockings in our house, and they hold more too!!)
