Some people mark the change of seasons by things like flowers popping out of the ground or snow falling on the ground. I’m always hot, so it is practically summer all year long for me. But when I get my first glimpse of rainier cherries, I know it really is summer…and that I’m going to spend a fortune on cherries for the next month. They are crazy expensive (for a cherry, that is) but so delicious! Don’t wait too long to buy them though…they are generally only available in July (although you can occasionally find some late June or early August too).
