October portrait of
Sweet Cherry



The 'Queen Anne' & the 'Rainier' sweet cherry trees are
cross-pollinating companions. They are among the finest fruiting
cherries, but they also put on a fine spring flower display,
& pretty nice autumn yellows. This is a mid-October (2004) portrait.


We've forgotten which cherry is which,
but if the one shown first is 'Queen Anne,'
then this one to the south of the other would have to be 'Rainier.'
Though they are planted pretty close to one another in the same yard
with identical conditions, the first one has lost nearly all its leaves
by early November, whereas the other, shown here,
has reached its peak of yellow color the first week of November.

To read all about the sweet cherry trees, see the primary
