Cherry Picking!

This Sunday, I went with my family and friends to Klondyk Cherry Farm to go pick our own cherries and enjoy a day out! It was so much fun, so I thought I would share some photos! Not shown on the photos is the crazy weather we had! For 90% of the day, it was ridiculously hot. However, after our picnic lunch, the thunder and lightning started, and we ended up getting totally soaked! Then, just as we started driving away from the farm, the rain turned into hail - the largest hailstones I've ever seen in our area. Then a few minutes later, back to the >35°C heat! Rather bizarre!

Firstly, though, I needed some nail art to suit the occasion! The base colour I used was "that's what I mint" by essence. I then added the cherries using "red red" by wet n wild with my essence dotting tool. I added the stalks and leaves using a toothpick and "the green and the grunge" by essence.


Here are some photos from the day:









(All photos by my brother, except for the last one of the two of us, which was taken by my mom)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have several kilograms of cherries to eat my way through :)

  1. I absolutely adore the nail art! I'm definitely going to have to give it a go myself at some point- it's so cute!

    I'm jealous of how hot the weather looks in the photos; it's averaging about 5'c here right now, which isn't really all that cold, but it feels like summer was decades ago now. I wish we got that gorgeous heat all summer! It looks gorgeous! xx
