Crowds of Cherries

Do so many Rainier cherry buds promise a good cherry crop? I hope so. They are opening later than the rococo decorative cherry, all frills and lace, behind it. The tightly clustered cherry buds remind me of crowds of mussels or barnacles sharing tiny bits of surface on stones at the sea shore. All they need is enough space to touch and hold on.
