Last of the summer cherries; on with the plums! Einde van de zomer kersen; laat de pruimen maar komen!

Cats wonder about things ... lots of things. Human food delights are just one of those things.
So what exactly do human's find so fascinating, (or tasty, for that matter), about cherries (kersen) ?

Finn decided to find out for himself.













The cherries are nice and round (rond) , and very pretty (erg mooi)
Hmm, Finn thinks they could be a fun toy (speelgoed) , but not particularly tasty (lekker) to this cat - others may have a differing opinion.














Ahhh, I think Finn's in love! (Ik denk dat Finn verliefd is!)














Our 'mom' likes to draw the cherries. Here's a sketch done in her small Moleskine notebook with ink and colored pencils.
(Hier is een tekening.)

Alas, now the season for cherries is over. (Helaas, het kersenseizoen is voorbij.)

But look! (Maar kijk!) Something else small, round and very tasty... or so our mom says.
Plums! (pruimen) Specifically, Opal Plums, as these are named (opal pruimen) . Here is a watercolor (een aquarel) by our mom, done in her small Moleskine watercolor sketchbook with Yarka pan watercolors.


She also threatened to make a nice tart (taart) with them and let us lick the bowl of cream (slagroom) ... but that never happened, maybe next season!


Doei! (bye)
