OMG! Are these not the most beautiful cherries you have ever seen?! My friend and I toured Traverse City, Sutton's Bay and Charlevoix last week and were THRILLED to discover cherries were in season! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looks like MI is about 4 weeks behind in our produce. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We about lost our minds as we passed these gorgeous cherry trees on our way to Charlevoix. I'm SUPER EMBARRASSED to admit I have never been in the Traverse City area when cherries were blooming. WOW WOW WOW!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We stopped at several roadside stands and picked up pints of tart cherries...tonight I'm making a cherry crisp....I will post a pic (and the recipe if it's good!). I'll be making it as healthy as possible with oat and coconut flour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #visitcharlevoix #charlevoix #charlevoixmichigan #traversecitytourism #traversecity #cherries#pieinmyfuture #traversecitymi #traversecitymichigan #cherries #cherrytrees #Michigan #puremichigan #michigantravel #greatlakesstate #michiganstate #travelingmichigan #greatlakesstateofmind #puremittenpride #lovemichigan #michiganders #exploremichigan #puremittigan #northernmichigan #greatlakesstate #greatlakesstateofmind #greatlakeslocals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #midwestmoment #michiganders #onlyinmichigan
