Berry Christmas

Berry Christmas, everyone.  I had hoped very much to paint and post a funny picture of some fruitbats hanging on a Christmas tree ... but I just ran out of time.  There's so much fruit to pick!!!  

This is just a fraction of our crop.  It's as delicious as it looks.  A big thankyou to Jane and Andy for coming over and picking all the cherries that were above my reach.  My back hasn't been the same since I picked the redcurrants. 

So -- wishing everyone a cherry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Look forward to seeing you all in 2015.
