Plum blossoms

I know that Ken already posted a picture of these, but they're so beautiful that I couldn't resist. I see a lot of these trees around our neighborhood (this one's in our yard) and they're all flowering now. Other trees are starting to flower as well; another good warm spell and spring will be busting out all over.

I wonder how many plums we'll get? This tree is still very small.

Our daffodils and hyacinths are up and flowering, too. In another few weeks we should start seeing apple blossoms. There's still a lot of clean up to do out back. We got a bunch done when it was warm last week, but the chilly relapse has kept us in for a few days. We'll be back at it before long.


  1. Walt, good to hear from you today. You are about 2 months ahead of us here as far as blossoms go! But one never knows with the weather we've been having.....maybe 6 weeks and we'll have blossoms on our plum tree.

  2. Very pretty.
    Sorry, that's all I got!

  3. jim, last year we had a very dry and warm spring. So far it looks like we might have the same this year.

    mark, and that's good enough for me!

  4. All the plums I have planted succumbed to fire blight....I think I'll try something else, alas.....I really would have liked to have grown plums.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
