no cherries this year

Last year our cherry tree produced something like 10 gallons of juicy, sweet, dark red cherries. We gave them away to everyone we knew because there were too many to eat. And then, tragically, a tree trimmer guy "topped off" instead of "shaped up" the tree, leaving it butchered and ugly. I was devastated and thought it wouldn't come back. But it has! Here it is now--full and pretty, albeit with 15 feet of height taken off. But as a result of last year's butchering, we didn't get any cherries this year. We'll see what happens next year!
