Every year, when June rolls around, I look forward to fresh cherries. It starts out with the appearance of a small bag at the supermarket which tells me to keep an eye out for an email announcing the exact days that fresh cherries will be available for picking. Then we head out to pick pounds and pounds of cherries. I prefer the bing cherries while my husband waits for the sour variety. He makes jam while I sit on the porch eating my cherries right out of a bowl.
So it was of little surprise that I was inspired to create a cherry hat collection from this delicious summer fruit.
