Where was the cherry tree?

Thurs., July 11, 1935 - We canned 5 quarts of pickled beets and 19 quarts of rhubarb.  By nite we were ready for bed.
Fri., July 12, 1935 - We picked a bushel of cherries this morning.  Mom and I washed our hair.  Baked a cake.  Went to installation tonite.  Mom along, too.
Sat., July 13, 1935 - Cleaned up the house.  Aired the bedding and cleaned the hall bedroom.  Howard was up here an hour this evening.

They sure picked a lot of cherries.  I do not remember a cherry tree at Grandma's house.  I will ask (in person) those people in the know for my own edification.  I do fondly remember the apricot tree right by the back door.  I remember being fairly sad when it had to come down.
